Note: My son in law was has been talking to co worker who wants to trap my hogs (there are 8 of them plus little ones) and feed them corn in preparation for slaughtering them.

Not sure about this at all.

It's one thing to hunt them but to catch them and shoot then? Seems sorta wrong.

It'll take several months to fatten them up with corn. It will be the best three months of their otherwise miserable lives. But they're still likely to be ungrateful.

Like you lot.

The great circle of life, epitomized by massive and violent hogs.

Something to meditate on.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

The guns aren't his. He's just holding them for a friend.
Such potential!

The case is one of the biggest black eyes in the history of the Miami-Dade Police Department and State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle's administration. In 2015, local cops, elected officials, and Rundle stood at a lectern and declared that then-15-year-old Deandre Charles had murdered Joseph Raksin, a prominent New York City rabbi. Rundle then revealed an utterly ridiculous witness-drawn sketch that looked more like a discarded Muppets character than a real human being.

But roughly a year later, prosecutors were forced to admit Charles didn't kill the rabbi. In an explosive lawsuit filed in federal court last Thursday, Charles' lawyers say they now have proof that both Rundle's office and the detective involved, Michael Brajdic, possessed evidence from the beginning that proved Charles' innocence. Yet they charged the teen anyway and plastered his face on TV next to the humiliating sketch that later went so viral it became part of a Kevin Hart comedy routine.

In short, the suit alleges the county could have (and should have) avoided ruining the life of an innocent 15-year-old by labeling him a murderer. According to the suit, Brajdic, the police detective, had ample evidence that a group of young men was involved in the killing. He was repeatedly told that Charles was home with his family when the homicide occurred.
The sketch is pricelessly terrible.

If it was the plot of a Law and Order: Yes We're Still Making Series episode, it would be a bad episode.
