piggies on the lam

…And Raise You 3000 Illinois Piglets!

Nearly 3,000 piglets on the loose after crash on I-70 in Illinois

Author: Kayla Gaffney
CUMBERLAND CO., Ill. – If you were traveling along Interstate 70 in Cumberland County Friday morning, you probably saw the scene. Nearly 3,000 piglets were on the loose in the area between Casey and Greenup near mile marker 127.

The piglets got loose after a truck carrying them was involved in a crash. Illinois State Police said the crash occurred because the driver was “ill” and was cited for improper lane usage.

Troopers urged drivers to be cautious while they corralled the livestock.

ISP thanked everyone from local fire departments, IDOT and other volunteers for helping them get the area cleaned up.

Demands recount.

  1. A lot of bacon out there to PIG out on but don’t be too piggish about it.

    I like bacon.
    Don’t want it in my salad.
    Don’t want it on top of my hamburger.
    Don’t want it in my eggs.
    Don’t want it wrapped around my steak.
    I don’t want it “sprinkled” on anything.

    I like bacon.

    This little piggy said “Don’t wanna go to market…”

  4. Claw says:

    Ahhh, Spring is in the air. Bacon seeds in a Bull Hauler in route to be planted.

    And the survivors went “Wee, Wee, Wee All the Way Home.”

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    “ISP said about 100 piglets died in the accident.”

    Poor piggies… never saw it coming. Now they will never have a chance to reach their true destiny… as sausages, bacon, BBQ pulled pork and ham.

    I am sad.

      This will cheer you right up- The World’s Best Bacon.

      Heat oven to 350 dF. Place a cooling rack on a half sheet cookie pan.

      Spray rack with an aerosol cooking oil.

      Arrange thick cut bacon rashers on the rack- some overlay is OK, but don’t overcrowd.

      Into the oven for 30-40 minutes, oven and preferences depending.

      Remove from oven.

      Option: Drizzle with maple syrup, let cool.


      Reserve all that rendered bacon fat in the pan, of course.

        The World’s Best Bacon:

        Drop a spoonfull of recovered bacon drippings into a nonstick skillet and heat slowly to melting.

        Add 4 to 6 slices of thick, lean bacon.

        On low heat, let the bacon cook on one side, then on the other, turning it frequently to keep it from sticking. Keep a screen over the skillet or suffer the consequences.

        When all bacon is crispy on one side, turn it over and let it finish.

        Remove bacon to a plate loaded with fried eggs on large shredded wheat biscuits. Add strawberries for garnish. Turn off the stove.

        Do not get any on you.

          Cook bacon nude. The splatters will tell you when the pan is too hot.

          Re below, first plane ride ever was St. Louis-Tampa. Almost four hour flight as I recall. I was allowed briefly to play quietly in the aisle provided I didn’t mess up my suit. People used to dress up for plane trips in those days.

      • Fyrfighter says:

        Add some crushed red pepper, or cayenne to the maple syrup…

      • Was a breakfast cook at a Steamboat Springs ski resort (1972, 6 years post Army discharge) and essentially that is how I did all my bacon at about 4:30 each morning. No maple syrup but if I did it would have had to be the real deal as I grew up on a farm that had a maple syrup camp where we made our own syrup (cooked the maple sap down in a monster pot over a fire) in a maple forest high above the valley where we lived in Wisconsin.

    NYC also had a Lockheed Constellation in TWA livery go through town headed to become an airport bar. Pretty cool photos. The Connies are an iconic image of 50’s plane travel.

  7. 5th/77th FA says:

    “And on the Eighth Day..God created Bacon.”

    “There is no wrong way to properly cook Bacon.”

    “The main reason Mooselems are pissed at the whole world is because they can’t eat bacon.”

    • Ncat says:

      Or drink whiskey…

      Come to think of it, if I couldn’t have my booze and bacon (and pork ribs, and chops, etc.), I’d probably be blowing sh*t up by next Thursday.

      • HMC Ret says:

        Their ‘religion’ doesn’t allow for bacon or booze but the molestation of children is permitted. Seems legit.

    You can’t get 3,000 piglets on one trailer. Whoever wrote that story should do a little research first.
