HUMOR

The Gift Of The Pig Head

The horror that led the boy home

by author

Seventy-five years ago, when my friend was a little girl, she went on a family outing requiring her to carry a pig’s head on her lap. The family’s recreational mission was to drive the head to town so it could be made into hog’s head cheese, in other words, good memories, edible family glue.
