We boldly wallowed where many a strange man has wallowed before!
To a small and quaint town called Trie sur BaÃ¯se, in the Hautes-Pyrenees Rach Piggot (a.k.a. Pig) and I went in pursuit of the legendary men and women who engage in the high pitched battle to become the World Champion Pig squeeler, or ‘Cri du Cochon’ in French.
Impersonating the birth, life and death of the humble porker, about 8 men and women cried out on stage, while the much larger audience cried tears of laughter. Actually, it could have been pain because I had to put my fingers in my ears on more then one occassion.
Anyway, there was certainly a lot of support and a popular choice, StÃ©phane SÃ©journÃ©, a university lecturer was crowned with the title. One that I’m sure his peers and students would be very impressed with.
Oh, you could also bet on a pig tri-factor in the piglet racing.
