Regular readers already know that we at the PETA Files think that pigs are appealing even when they’re squealing. But it’s thanks to the work of professor Stanley Curtis, who passed away on Sunday, that we know that no matter how beguiling pigs may be, you shouldn’t let them hustle you into playing Super Street Fighter IV with them. During his time at the University of Illinois, professor Curtis discovered that pigs can play and excel at joystick-controlled video games.
He observed that “there is much more going on in terms of thinking and observing by these pigs than we would ever have guessed.” Pigs did better at video games than some primates (and, yes, based on my gaming scores, I fall into that group).
So cook up some “fakin’ bacon” in professor Curtis’ memory and then see how far you can get in the New Super Chick Sisters game without help from our porcine pals!
