How Did a Scarf-Wearing Pig End Up on a Highway Outside Pittsburgh?

A scarf-sporting pot-bellied pig held up drivers on the Parkway West outside Pittsburgh yesterday as it gave state troopers the run-around for a half-hour before escaping into the woods.

Nicknamed the "sharp-dressed pig" by locals, the piglet's origins and current whereabouts remain unknown.

While many have clearly latched on to the animal's bizarre attire, my favorite part of this story is the Chyron underneath one of the eyewitnesses interviewed by KDKA. "So, Mr. Bryan. What makes you think you're the most qualified man for this job?" "I saw a pig."

"Welcome aboard."
