Miracle Pig Named China’s Favorite Pet

By Wyatt Earp | December 22, 2008

In second place? Yao Ming.

BEIJING – A pig that survived 36 days buried in the rubble of May’s massive Sichuan earthquake has been voted China’s favourite animal, but the attention has made him fat, lazy and bad-tempered, state media said.

The hog, trapped in a sty after the 7.9 magnitude quake, was bought by a local businessman who was moved by its ordeal and named “Zhu Jianqiang,” or “Strong Pig.”

It survived by eating charcoal and drinking rainwater.

Now it has been voted top of an online poll of animals “who moved China” this year, the weekend edition of the China Daily said. (H/T - )

I searched the web for a photo of the pig, and finally found it. It’s under the fold . . .


Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Michael Moore loves the commies.

    Look at that porcine waste. It survives by eating Chrisitans and drinking the blood of our soldiers.

    Alan - I think it’s okay . . . unless the Chinese eat him.

    Jon Brooks - You mean Moore, right?

    Jon - You mean Moore, right??? Heh.

    Marvin - Thank you, I’ll be here all week! Try the pork!

    Captain - Well, it can’t be a “Which gun should I buy” post, but I do my best.

    I was hoping Moore would have stroked out by the end of the year.

    Yeah, I guess I am going to hell.
