Every age has its host of harbingers of doom or rapture. If it’s not Spaghetti Jesus or some outbreak of this-or-that –flu or -pox, then it’s something akin to what has been born in Santa Cru El Chol, Guatemala, slouching toward to Bethlehem: a black piglet with a mutant head.
Locals of the village, who the Austrian Times refer to as “peasants”, blame aliens for bringing forth such a freakish creature: evidently farmers witnessed strange lights in the sky at the time of birth. Health officials, on the other hand, ever the kill-joys, point to environmental pollution or genetic mutation.
It is the anniversary of 9/11, an apt time for such auguries to make the news. The time is ripe for paranoid conclusions that an attack is on the horizon, extra-terrestrial or otherwise. We can distance ourselves from these silly ‘peasants,’ but maybe their hysteria is not so different than our own.
Hold on to your butts; it’s the end of the world as we know it.
Have a look at the pictures below and see for yourself….who knows maybe this little piglet is just a human trapped in a human’s body? Or maybe not…
