Jim Carrey Stands Up for Pigs on MTV

“There wouldn’t be a swine flu if we treated the pigs better!”

That was superstar comedian and professional face-contorter Jim Carrey’s shout out to pigs during his acceptance speech for Best Comedic Performance at the MTV Movie Awards last night.

While Rob Pattinson cleaned up in every other category and “Bruno” shocked the audience when he stuck his you-know-what in Eminem’s face, Carrey’s speech took home the golden popcorn for Best Awards Show Moment, at least in our eyes.

Thanks, Jim. If you ever want to put your mug on a pro-pig poster, you know where to find us.

    I saw him once about six or seven years ago on Columbus Ave. He was literally dancing and bouncing down the street. I think he was very happy. If your happy and you know it hop and skip. If your happy and you know it do the splits. If your happy and you know it stick up for the little piggies. If your happy and you know it don’t eat pork. Thank you Jim Carrey.

    Rojo I think you need to learn a little bit about how a superflu like that is created. Then you’ll see why humans are at fault here.

  • Dana says:

    I thought the joke was an insult to animal rights activists. Trying to make us seem ridiculous. I guess I took it the wrong way.

  • Mary Ellen says:

    Rojo I assume your earlier comment was not to be taken seriously right?!
