Thought number one: If you make a piggy bank that just anybody could get into by lifting the lid, you’re really not making much of a piggy bank. It’s more of a coin bowl at that point, hardly conducive to fiscal responsibility at all.
My second thought was, “or maybe someone just REALLY wanted those pennies, and had a dremel and a lot of patience.”
Either way, it’s the pigs that suffer.
Sadly, with the amount of packing tape wrapped around this thing, I was unable to see what magic was inside a pig. Probably Hope, trapped in a box for thousands of years. Nobody would think to look for hope inside a pig. Scrapple, perhaps, but not hope.
Those are great eyes. Pigs shouldn’t have creepy blue eyes like Daniel Craig. Because then I would be confused, as Mr. Craig’s eyes areÂ amazing, and if the pig would then go on to speak in a clipped British accent I would have some serious internal discord.
What has been done to this pig cannot be undone :( He seems happy though, maybe they just took a few pieces of bacon and left him alone. I guess a pig like this you can’t eat all at once.

Gawd that thing is hideous. I made something equally as hideous once in pottery class. My neighbor thought it was fantastic, so I gave it to her. But this pig? I suspect it’s doomed to stay on the $1.29 shelf.
I thought it was broken, not made that way. lol
I like ugly ceramics but that is even too ugly for me. I am more into fat chickens.. :D
Thanks again for the laugh!
