Terry wins piggy prize

Postby wicked woman » Wed May 30, 2012 6:11 am

Terry is to have a pig named in his honour after winning the 13th Bolinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction, which he won for Snuff.

So will the Pig be called Terry or Snuff?

The pig would have to be hoping it is going to be 'Terry'!

Snuff the pig would indicate chops in his near future!

Snuff the Pig doesn't sound too bad, the year Marina Lewycka won the poor pig ended up being called 'A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian' :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Congrats Terry :clap:

So if its a "special" pig ... does it get to live forever and just breed for the rest of its life rather than get eaten?
