Hog Heaven

While in a short line at the local convenience store today I happened to see this California Lottery scratch-off game. For a buck, it was hard to resist. The cheesy-looking pig here is happy with mud and money, but there is a much longer association of pigs with luck, something most often seen in vintage postcards, especially German ones. You can see a few examples here, where there is a brief discussion of pigs as lucky charms. Alas, my ticket wasn't so lucky--I got nothing...
