Pigs Stolen – Stuffed in Van

I love bacon just as much as the next dog, if not more.  No I’m not talking about Kevin Bacon, but rather, the food.

Although I like it, I would never go to the lengths a couple of Hungarian thieves did in procuring their porcine.

Wouldn’t it have just been easier to go to the local McDonalds and just order a Bacon, Ham and Cheese biscuit? Or head over to the Honeybaked Ham company for their signature dish? Heck, I’d even go so far as sitting down at a Waffle House for some fried fat bacon before trying to kidnap a dozen pigs. But then again, I do enjoy the path of least resistance.

Two thieves were caught in southern Hungary with 12 pigs stuffed in their small van during a routine traffic check, Hungarian police said on Thursday.

Police stopped two men in a Renault Kangoo near the town of Szigetvar, about 137 miles south of Budapest, as they attempted to drive off.

‘The pigs weighed about 25-30 kg each – they were really squashed into the car very tightly,’ a spokesman said.

The image of a circus’ clown car comes to mind. Instead of clowns coming out of the Volkswagon Beetle, though it’s a constant stream of Ms. Piggys. Mmm…tasty.


Got something to say?
