    Anyone listen to the NPR spoof of PBPs by David Sedieros? Or the short story of the couple that breaks up after rescuing an unwanted PBP and haul it to a safe house rescue shelter in Montreal in the back seat of their car?

    These sound fun but I can't find anything on NPR's site. Can you give links or more info please, if it will not compromise your Presidential Position?

    While going around and around and around........on the old red tractor I listened to them on Radio Saturday so sorry I don't have links. Usually NPR rebroadcasts Saturday's material on Sunday(for folks who may have missed it)LOL, so if you leave Radio tuned today you may catch it. It was a full hour show devoted just to Porcine Humor. It followed The Chef's Table segment about Salmon and breadmaking,LOL. After it was done the Prairie home Companion show poked a stick at folks in your neck of the woods- SC!!!!
    Show was from Spartanberg, SC, not NC as originally reported,LOL
    Segment about Rebel Rentals - where every truck comes with a dog :rolleyes:

    OK, the PBP story I can't find. I did find David Sedaris (ahem!) and a link to feeds but they stop at December and don't show anything about pigs. Bummer! I give up, maybe someone else can do better. http://www.npr.org/rss/rss.php?id=5023232

    Was it on This American Life ? I didn't catch this particular edition, but often enjoy the segments on that show.

    Try this website:

    The show looks like it should be available for download in a week.
