He Rides

 

Also, the pigs have come.  They are Berkshire/Tamworth, the black one is female, the other are male.  This is what happens when you have two artistic, non-farmers pick out piglets: “Hmmm, I think I like the spotted ones!”  Yup.  That’s us.

Last years’ pigs were named after rappers (Pig Daddy Kane and Piggy Smalls).  Thinking something more Shakespearean this year?  Hamlet Piglet and…. this is where you come in.  Please suggest names for our new merry trio!

    Gosh, Scott looks even skinnier in these pictures! And good job on Bob, he must want to ride all the time now.

    No suggestions for names from me, sorry, I’m not up on my Shakespeare. And I’d go Wagnerian if they were mine!

    In keeping with Shakespeare names, and I’ll let you decide if they’re piggy or not, I just went with P’s:
    – Percy (Richard II and/or Henry IV)
    – “Piglonius” instead of Polonius (Hamlet)
    – Portia (Merchant of Venice)
    – Prospero (The Tempest)
    – Puck (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

    One suggestion because it’s just too cute and easy: Tom Snout (Midsummer Night’s Dream).

    Good job Bob!

    I can only think of one name for the pigs… Oinkphelia

  6. Andy · April 27, 2011

    Erika wins.

    If the one is Hamlet, I’d name the other two Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

    Go with rockers. Glenn Hamzig and Henry Hoggins come to mind.

    Benepig (from Benedict, much ado about nothing) and Beatrixpig (from Beatrix, girlfriend of said Benedict).

    Awesome riding Bob!

    I like CaliHAM (Caliban from Midsummer Night’s Dream) .. HAM! See what I did there?!

  11. Alex · April 27, 2011

    Actually I should correct myself… Caiban is in the Tempest. Whoops!!

    How about Beatrix Porker or Harry Porker (I just watched the Simpson Movie – again).

  13. Nicolle · April 27, 2011

    You could call the female Lady Porkbeth and the other two, I really liked the idea of Hamlet. Or maybe Hameo? Baconvolio?

  20. Jovanka · April 27, 2011

    Yay Bob! Can’t wait to meet (eat) the new piggies!

  21. Siobhan · April 27, 2011

    Love these pics of Bob. My dad posted pictures on Facebook of the day he taught me to ride a bike and I definitely wish there had been action shots.

  22. Nicole · April 27, 2011

    Go Bob go!

    How about Piago (Iago from Othello)? Or Porkelius (Cornelius from Hamlet)?

    Or simply Lord Bacon of Ontario?
