the Secret pig page

So what’s with all of the pig references, anyway?

Well, it’s like this…

Diane, our Art Editor, had a pot-bellied pig when she lived in California. As a pet. In her house.

And one Sunday we were meeting for bagels and business with the Haute Dish staff and Diane started telling stories about the pig and it’s exploits and various foul odors it would emit, things it would chew, and before long we were all laughing ourselves into hysterics.

At the next meeting, Suzanne showed up with little plastic pigs for everyone, and the hook was set.

It’s as simple as that, really. The pig represents the fun and work and frustration and fear and joy and mutual respect and most of all the friendship that has happened during the first year of rebuilding Haute Dish.

Oink!
