PINK PIG

I am puzzling over the function of this pig - its colour and shape remind me of my hairbrush (shocking!) but I'm guessing it's like jelly. Crazy!

Maybe it's a hedgehog? Very crisp and sharp picture Lucy.

Made me smile anyway - great picture. And the colours work.

Hello Kitty. What a wonderfully utilitarian question! What is this pig for? Well, nothing - except to delight little children. You are right, it has a jelly-squidgy texture. It is hollow and used to be on an elastic string so you could bounce it up and down. Wonderful if you are a certain age . . . and colourful if you happen to have your camera with you when you notice it. (Colourful even when no-one's looking too I expect.)

I'd say hedgehog, probably, Chuck, now you mention it. I'd seen it as a pig with bristles and eyelashes. I'll cover myself by thinking hogs are pigs . . . or something!

Hello Hermes. Having resolved that it has no purpose except to please and that it is a hedgehog, not a pig, you arrive in time to enjoy the picture without being challenged by deeper questions.

Right. Hmm. I've changed it to black and white (which means mostly white) and changed it to 'Hedgehog' and posted it in its new state. It's rather shy but it's here
