Literary Pigs, Unite!

Check out this link via The Point: Barnyard reign of terror halted…and other unexpected results of the swine flu (originally from John Mark Reynolds in The Scriptorium). Brilliant.

Circe & pigs

Pumbaa, you’re next. Trust no one. Not even Timon.

And Homer? You might want to send Spider-Pig back before the third episode comes along and he learns about his dark side…

    I realized I didn’t have this image linked to its source as I usually do, so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I looked it up, and the image is “The Conversion of Ulysses” by Hippolyte Casimir Gourse. Here’s the source where I found it: http://www.medeaslair.net/circe.html
