The pig on the media tour

We were on the Winston Cup Media Tour in the early to middle 1990s, and we'd stopped at a business that provided racers with safety products.

One of the workers there had a pot-bellied pig, and for some reason a handful of women on the tour wanted to pet the pig. I looked around, and they had it trapped at the top of a short set of steps in front of a closed door, and the pig was terrified.

The pig got away for a moment, then did something extraordinary. It knocked down a display to cause its own distraction. While the women were retreating a few feet, the pig made its getaway.

Don't say that pigs aren't smart.
