What A Mess! #1

Nun gibt es in Stuttgart noch ein weiteres Museum. Am 01. Mai wurde im Alten Stuttgarter Schlachthof das "weltgrößte" Schweinemuseum  feierlich eröffnet. Es gab jede Menge VIPs, es wurden Reden gehalten, es gab zu Essen und zu Trinken, das Wetter spielte mit und die Stimmung war prächtig.
There is a new museum in town. On the First of May (May Day) the "world's largest" pig's museum was inaugurated. There were a lot of VIPs, a lot of speeches, food and drinks are provided for the guests, the weather was agreeable and the mood was good.
Im Mittelpunkt stand das "Neckarsäule", also "kleine Sau vom Neckar", denn im Schwäbischen wird vieles mit der Endung "-le" verniedlicht (z.B. Spätzle, Scheißerle, Mauldäschle). Fortsetzung morgen ...
The Neckarsäule (little sow from the river Neckar) was really an eye-catcher. The Swabian dialect knows the ending "-le" for all minimizations. To be continued ...

That's great. It's about time the poor old pig got some recognition.

Did they serve pork sandwiches?

A pig museum? Omigod! What will "they" think of next? Pigs are really cool animals, though. And not bad eating, either, if you're into eating animals.

You know, of course, why little pigs eat so much corn, right?

No? Well, they want to make hogs of themselves!

The building is very grand! Actually, so is the "piggle." This looks like a light-hearted event. I'll bet you had fun.
