THIS IS A WEIRD R-RATED TOPIC! I MEAN NO OFFENSE. JUST SPREADING THE WORD.
The time has come. Sorry Oinky.
Here we are in the car on the way to the large and exotic animal vet allll the way in Lexington, GA to get Oinks…… castrated. Ah! What a terrible word. I do feel a tad sorry for the poor guy, but like I said, that time has come.
Here are some interesting facts about pigs (that no one will ever tell you):
1. Male pigs reach sexual maturity at 8 weeks.
Disgusting. Here is a little baby pig ready to…well… you know. Ick. My skin crawls at the thought. There have been cases of baby pigs impregnating there mothers. So f-ing sick.
2. Their hooha (aka penis) is shaped like a corkscrew.
I kid you not. If you are a personal friend of mine, you know this already. You’ve probably been invited over to have wine and stare at it.
Avert your eyes if this stuff freaks you out…
That is not Oinky. That is someone else’s pig who clearly had the same issue. So I am spreading the word. John and I kept thinking he had something stuck to his tummy. Boy, were we wrong.
3. They exude a musk.
Now, I couldn’t find any hard core medical jargon about this fact, but I know it to be true. It is an awful smell. I think that it may be stuck in my nose because I catch whiffs of it all the time. Once he’s castrated the musky smell should stop.
So, he’s off. I can’t wait to cuddle with him once again without fear of his corkscrew touching me. Shudder.
