    It’s only farm pigs that can’t look up in the sky, because they have fatter necks.

    • Femi January 30, 2023, 11:39 am

      Look sideways to the sky, you might be right for some pigs but not ‘look up into the sky’ for all pigs

    • Lilith February 1, 2023, 9:44 pm

      Actually, no pig can look directly up into the sky because their vertebrae are built funny. Yes, the less fatty pigs can lift their heads enough to see the sky but they can’t look directly up like the thing says.
