Swine Flew!


Chicago's Millennium Park isn't just about the Cloud Gate sculpture. When I strolled around here last September, I saw some cool art installations that were quirky and got me quizzical. Take this mutant red car with frog-like tongue suspending what looks like a gold swine and two naked people. Now that's what I call "Swine Flew!" He looks a bit tongue-tied, doesn't he?

Seeing this fun-tastic piece of art reminded me of gold bullion and gold coins--the chocolate kind, at least. Although a real gold coin wouldn't hurt either. The only coin collection I have involves the pressed souvenir pennies. The only pressed pennies I have from Chicago are from Sears Tower (which, by the way, is now called "Willis Tower!") and Navy Pier. As for the bullion, I'll buy me a billion when I hit the lotto.

I wonder what the gender of the swine is. Go back and take another picture from the other side. Haha.
