The Pigs of God is an extremely controversial festival that’s celebrated by the Hakka people of #Taiwan.  In the Roman calender this falls around end Jan / beginning Feb.

Here’s what happens.

Farmers from all over Taiwan spend about 2 years fattening up pigs to enter this competition.  The pigs are sequestered, force-fed and ballooned up to 10 times their normal weight.  During the last few days before the competition, the pigs are fed sand and metal (reportedly lead) in order to increase their weight.  At this point, the pigs cannot even stand – they just lay around.  Because of their excessive weight, they may have massive internal injuries – basically, they are slowly and painfully dying.

On the day of the festival, the pigs are dragged to the temple, weighed and sacrificed to the local deity, finally putting them out of their misery.  The #animals, at this point are almost mad with fear and pain.  They weigh anywhere from 700 – 900 kgs (1540 – 1980 lbs). The farmer with the fattest #animal is declared the winner.  He recieves a gold medal, and presumably the #blessings of the God for the next year.  Although, I find it hard to understand why any #God would look favourably on this sort of carnival.

This festival, despite it’s cruelty, draws crowds of thousands.  It should be noted that force feeding animals and sacrificing them in public are ILLEGAL in Taiwan, but the authorities turn a blind eye because they don’t want to interfere with local traditions and customs.

After the pig has been slaughtered, it’s spread on a sort of float, painted and paraded around the city.
I can't imagine how any person, regardless of religion or tradition would condone such obvious torture of animals.This whole thing got me thinking about ways that animals are abused in the west, and while not so overt, something very similar popped to mind.  #Ducks are overfed in order to create the delicassy of “#foiegras”. While not paraded around like these dead #pigs, the torture is the same.

“We took a bus to Maidstone today as @miss_piggy_digalig has still got her arm in a cast - still 4 weeks to go before it comes off - so, we’ve got two eyes (Americano & a Latte), a nose (Shortbread biscuit) so I guess you lot will have to smile for us 😊 The fog has lifted and it’s an extraordinarily warm, sunny February day here in the UK so we’ll be going for a walk along the river as it’ll be 16C 61F here today - almost 10C above the average! Anyway, hope you’re all having a luvverly day too!” Jimmy Junior ☕️💖🐷💖☕️🤗

The cost of your bacon 🥓
-
The death of sentient, intelligent animals, for a mere five minutes of taste pleasure.
-
For 'food' that the World Health Organization labels as carcinogenic and cancer causing.

Про Дусины тряпочки ))
Под тряпочками я называю ее полотенчики , шарфики и пододеяльники - собственность Дуси , подушки это отдельная история ,напишу о них позже .итак ! 
Однажды в порыве глобальной уборки , я собрала все Дусины тряпочки и постирала ,оставив ей только одинокий ,пустой лежак ,на котором Дуся спать не хотела и ходила за мной , гневно хрюкая ,требуя немедленного возвращения с трудом нажитого добра на ее место для сна . Когда все тряпочки были постираны , я развесила их в разных местах , часть на батарею , часть на сушилку и в общем то забыла и про Дусю и про тряпочки , у меня шла уборка полным ходом . В конце концов и Дуся устала хрюкать , угомонившись  где то в спальне. Я решила что она смирилась.Примерно через час  зашла в спальню и увидела что Дуся спит на своем лежачке ,уютно зарывшись в свою тряпочку ! Оказывается она сама сняла ее с сушилки , именно свою ,а не все подряд  вещи , и отнесла ее себе в гнездо ! Сама ! Вот он ,мозг и желание комфортного сна )) теперь стираю частями ,чтобы не расстраивать ее так сильно
