This Just Bothered Me

Saw this sign in Independence, MO with an anthropomorphic pig roasting the ribs of what is presumably a fellow pig over an open fire. I guess advertising using animals that produce a restaurant's featured meats is nothing new, but for some reason, this one bothered me. You can't really tell from this picture, but that pig is really licking his chops and looking excited about those ribs.

New Passport

Since my old passport expires in less than a year, I applied for a new one. I have to give kudos to the State Department. I had a new passport in my hands exactly two weeks after dropping my renewal application in the mail. Although I do have one complaint, the new passport is ridiculosly patriotic. Here is an example of what it looks like:

Every page has some patriotic artwork, be it Mt Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, buffalos on a prarie, or outer space. I'm sure the Customs agents will be impressed. Seriously, I don't know of any other country's passport that looks like this.
