Goosebumps: The Loneliest Pig Farmer

I don’t usually faun over a Goosebumps…and I’ll continue to keep not doing that in this case. I don’t have a weak stomach, but this latest entry in adult-oriented Goosebumps really tried my intestinal fortitude. R.L. Stine’s account of a mentally handicapped pig farmer who falls in love with his prize piggy is really light on one kind of squeal and really heavy in another way less appealing and squeal. I’ll just say this: if they don’t have a PETA in Belgium, then they really need a PETA in Belgium.


Pena Dismemberment Rite 35mm slide

I found this odd little…oddity at an ARC thrift store here in Denver. It’s of former Mayor Frederico Pena suffering some horrendous “rite” wherein a local politician dismembers the incoming mayor’s dominant arm. I’m still getting used to the strange habits of Colorado.
