Simpler Times

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it will still be delicious.

pigPicture it–Syracuse, 2009. One man needed crack, the other needed fresh pig for an upcoming celebration; his relative was being released from jail, after all. That is how the Pig for Crack barter was born. Angelo Colon paid a slaughtered pig and $10 for a bag of crack worth $50 – which goes to show that crack addicts suck at business. The police saw the men, mid-transaction, on the street corner and decided to check it out. Insert “pigs saving one of their own” joke here. What became of the pig after Colon and Omar Veliz’s arrest? Someone took it. In other news, stopthemadness and KeeblerKahn just got back from Syracuse looking suspiciously well fed.

  5. I just can’t get over that it was on a street corner. He carried the pig to the crack dealer’s office in plain sight?

    Well, technically it was a cube. He was a low-level dealer, not Scarface or anything.

  8. How come I’ve never been invited to a pig roast crack fest. This, and a warm can of High Life, sounds like my idea of a par-tay.
