Why Is This Dead Pig Riding Around in a Convertible in Hialeah?

hialeahpig.jpg
Riptide has noticed perhaps the most Hialeah picture of all time floating around Facebook this past week. It appears to show a dead pig riding shotgun in a convertible down a highway in Miami's redheaded stepchild of a suburb. Words fail us.

Now, obviously this appears to be someone taking a holiday lechon home to the family, but who really knows. Riptide has a few alternative theories.

  • Perhaps this was an art fair purchase? Scope did have a particularly tacky piece on display of a taxidermied pig mixed with a chesterfield sofa. This doesn't appear to be the same pig, but who know, maybe there was other pig based artwork displayed through out the week?
  • Or maybe this is just performance art in and of itself commenting on the culture of Hialeah?
  • Maybe the pig is being driven to a plastic surgeons office to be harvested for new parts for the Real Housewives of Miami cast? Given how classy that show is, it only makes sense that it would be chauffeured in a convertible.
  • Or maybe it's just an elaborate ploy meant to bring attention to seat belt safety. This pig has its seat belt on, do you?

If you have any alternative theories, or perhaps the real provenance of this pig, please let us know in the comments.

He could be from PR, A la Vara. Better than Caja China.

The man in this picture is Executive Chef Todd of The Front Porch Cafe in Miami Beach. The Front Porch Cafe does a Caja China Pig event once a month. This past Saturday (Dec 15) there was an event and the pig in the picture was the main meal. Chef Todd likes to buy from local farmers because it guarantees freshness and he knows exactly where it came from. He used every part of the pig and it was delicious! If you go to their Facebook page you can see the pictures!

i think it would be nice to give a pig a ride in a convertible BEFORE YOU KILL IT. Kind of like a make-a-wish for Pigs.

Typically people say "when pigs fly" But in Hialeah they say "cuando vea un puerco manejando un convertible"
