Bill Buford, food author and just all-around wacky personality, once wrote a book in which he ate a whole pig. This is a photo by Chris Buck of Buford carrying a pig. A swine, even.

Buford, the former editor of Granta and the fiction editor of The New Yorker, wrote in Heat about how he bought a whole pig and carved up every last part. That pig was dead, but this one is very alive and potentially filled with horrible, deadly swine flu. It'll be shown as part of the exhibit "Wild Things! Photography for Animal Lovers" at Stricola Contemporary starting this weekend.
