Happy Italian Animals

We were driving back from some lovely Italian hilltown the other afternoon in our rad rental car, gazing at the rolling grays and greens dotted with brick, red, and orange (and, seriously, the occasional pink house), watching for the absolutely insane Italian drivers you meet at least once a trip, when we passed an animal transport truck with this logo and pic:
Have you ever seen happier farm animals? I mean, this little porker and pals are just downright jolly on their way to . . . well, wherever they’re going. I sure hope it was a little farm in the country where they get to play and laugh all day, but you might call me na├»ve. I do wonder, what joke was just told to get the yukes following around the barnyard truck?


  1. Most likely a pig was driving and the cargo was humans. Not so funny now. Those animals are laughing all the way to the bank.

  2. They did have a little evil in their eyes. I just thought that was cause of the road rage most pig drivers have.
