Many have questioned the validity of whether or not pigs can fly. This was put to the test yesterday at a top jet propulsion laboratory in Durham when a fearless test subject (pictured below) volunteered to jump from a staggering height in order to save its bacon (pun not intended!).
Unfortunately we now know that pigs can’t actually fly but that bacon tastes really nice when fried! Animal rights activists, outraged by this, pelted scientists with brussel-sprouts on their way home. None were injured.
