This is not an anthropomorphic Miss Piggy in her ballgown and gloves. It's a barnyard-realistic pig dressed for the bedroom. Make of it what you will.

A chef was killed by a bite from the disembodied head of an Indonesian spitting cobra
. He had decapitated it 20 minutes earlier in preparation of a local dish. They say not to bite the hand that feeds you, the hand that eats you is another thing apparently.
Adam Hills, the above TV host, offered Westboro Baptist members a free trip to Iraq to protest real Christian persecution. They accepted! I really hope this guy provides the air fare for those screwballs
to actually go to Iraq. In fact I bet if Mr. Hills sets up a fund to send them that the donations would roll in nonstop. What a great idea, kudos sir!
Update: I guess the Westboro people chickened out

How did an unweaned rugrat manage to grow out three or four feet of bright red hair? Was she born with that mop? If so, Mom must have had one heck of a birthing experience.
Is it a wig? if so, please explain in 1000 words or less.

In the mid-1960s, when I was in elementary school, I had a subscription to HUMPTY DUMPTY MAGAZINE.
A very weird comic strip therein was titled "Twinkle, The Star That Came Down From Heaven." (Seen above, drawn by Jerry Smath, and courtesy of the Flickr stream of Glen Mullaly.
) Even as a kid, I knew it was strange. A living, sentient star who manifested on Earth in a bipolar costume and kept his face-equipped iconic star head? And did he come from the celestial heaven or the Christian Heaven? Far out!
Little did I know until recently that "Twink" had earlier adventures in the 1940s, in the pages of CALLING ALL KIDS, that were even more bizarre in their fashion. Unfortunately, no information remains about the writer and/or artist who was crazed enough to invent Twinkle.
You can read several issues here.
This issue appears to be Twink's origin story.
I love those giant railroad engineer/welder's gloves he wears in his 1940s incarnation.
