    Thumbs up Pig Races, anyone?

    In Katy, Texas, a muslim man bought acreage next to an existing pig farm with the intent of building a mosque.

    THEN, he has the gall to try and intimidate the pig farmer to sell, or move, or get rid of his pigs because the muslims find them offensive.

    In response, the pig farmer hosts Friday night pig races - at evening prayer time.

    I guess that over here the piggy farmer would be accused of being racist and promoting religious hatred. Well done Craig Baker! Put five bucks on Number 5 for me in next Friday's races.

    Will do, sir Ken.

    I am going to be in Houston this week, and actually thought I might stop in at the pig races on Friday night.

    Put $5 on the one that went "wee wee wee" all the way home.

    I'd be playing on 24-7 loop the sounds of pigs squealin'!

    Also, I'd be having pork barbecues every Friday afternoon... bet they'd love the smell!
