Good grief, Mick! Does the Parish Council know about this? I’ve heard of Pigs in Blankets, but Pigs in Shangri La Shevington? OMG!

Would someone please explain what a pig trap station is.

Are the poor pigs trapped in that long tube?

They must have their own home cured pork farm at Shangri La , nothing less would suffice for those inhabitants. It must be well hidden out of view and only a very select few trappers know where it is... hence the cage like fortress. Only the squealing can be heard in the early hours when the residents are in a dreamlike state....thinking they hear angels singing rapturously.

Been involved in building Pig Traps and putting pigs, of various sizes inside, and pushed them through pipes at quite a speed until they reach the next trap.

There's breaking news that thousands of students are gathering at those gates and protesting that Pigs are cruelly treated by being pushed along pipelines to clean the insides of the pipes, and are objecting to this by squealing loudly. Apparently a Smart Pig escaped from there and told the NUS of the treatment inflicted on Pigs at the Shevington Pig Trap Station.

Cadent was approached for comment and replied "it's a load of hogwash".

Linma a pig trap is were the gas people put a mechanical spinning brush or bung into the pipe line to keep the inner of the pipe line clean a bit like using a bottle brush but fancier

Thanks PeterP, a day wasted is when you don’t learn something new.
