A book with comics about selfish pigs. I found some funny and others not so funny.

Picked up in the OBCZ shelf at Baker Narum at Kuben (shopping mall) in Hønefoss.

Found this on the OBCZ shelf at Oslo S on Friday, when I was on my way home from Oslo, and it just had to come home with me. Looks like a fun read.

I read this during my Hurricane Irma read-a-thon: shuttered up inside the house with no electricity, what else can one do???

Nobody is safe from the selfish pig, not even Jesus, the pig wants his shroud to sell "should he catches on", nor Neil Armstrong, whom the pig beats (literally) to be first to step on the moon. Funny and at times hilarious, this was the perfect read in midst of a scary storm (which we came out relatively unscathed, thankfully.)

The pigs decide that they want to go eat some Andouillette ("I don't even like this stuff. I just want other pigs to die") so they will come with me to the Bordeaux BC con next year. Hope to see you there too, CatherineB, and thanks again for the book.

Journal Entry 9 by wing6of8wing at Bordeaux, Aquitaine France on Friday, April 20, 2018
I was helping set up for the convention and for a short period of time was left to my own devices. I started putting the books left in bags without labels on the book buffet, then realized that I probably shouldn't and tried to put them all back in the proper bags. In the process, I came across this book and couldn’t resist it. I had to smile and shake my head at the greedy pigs. I tried not to draw any political associations, but didn't succeed. However, I will keep them to my sister. (ETA -- I happened to recheck this J/E in June and saw that either there was a Freudian slip or an autocorrect error. The last word should have been self, not sister.)

Caught at the Bookcrossing Convention in Bordeaux, France. It appears this was brought by Azuki (who is awesome) and Six read through it (who is also awesome).

Releasing around the BC-in-DC group.

Journal Entry 11 by KateKintail at Burke, Virginia USA on Friday, January 18, 2019
I finally gave this one a quick read today! I'm not sure it's quite the humor I'd expected. While a lot of these are definitely selfish and funny (pigs trapping geese in a cage then putting on geese costumes to eat the bread crumbs people throw into a pond) some are more on the mean side (trapping people inside a room that's on fire).

Definitely awesome to get a chance to read such a well-traveled book, though!

Another book that found its way into my back at today's meeting. I may actually "read" (sort of...there don't appear to be many words) this book before I release it for someone else.

Journal Entry 14 by wingResQgeekwing at Alexandria, Virginia USA on Monday, January 21, 2019
Ummm...selfish, perhaps, but rude, angry, mean spirited as well. A few of these cartoons were funny enough to get a chuckle, but I guess too much of it felt a bit to close to our current reality for me to find much humor in it. The attitudes on display in these cartoons seem to have become all too common, which probably makes this more of a commentary on society than it may have been intended.
