Our little blue plastic friend is heading to Athens! We will stuff him with grape leaves and send him on to the people of Greece, in thanks for not tanking the entire world economy. Or at least that’s what we’re told we avoided because of their vote last weekend.

Piggy is not political. He is not a conservative, he is not a liberal. He is a pig. But he does not enjoy economic calamity any more than the rest of us.

So Greece, thank you… for now. And piggy will hope that a trip to Spain may be in the offing, where he will be stuffed with chestnuts and… oh, nevermind.
