Another word for a pig is a hog
Does that mean pigs will be exposed as coming from a Satanic family? Or is there no justice, hogg?
‘The name hog most commonly refers to the domestic pig (Sus domestica) in everyday parlance, but technically encompasses several distinct species, including the wild boar. Swine is a collective noun generally used to describe pigs as a group rather than an individual, however it may often be implied in a pejorative manner to any living being expressing pig-like behaviour.’ – Wikipedia
* Pejorative – pe·jor·a·tive = ’Tending to make or become worse’.
Yep, that fits. Not with pigs, but with hogs.
