Behavior of Domestic Pigs

Please choose a format above.

You can't underestimate the importance of a good title.  What would "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" be if it were called "Some Stuff That Good People Do Good"?  Or if "Who Moved my Cheese" had been called "How is this bottle of EZ Cheez empty already?  I just bought it yesterday!" Or if "Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould" had been called "G. Gould: Sexecutioner"?

Actually, we probably would have gone to see that last one...Anyways, the point is, titling your work of art is in itself an important art form.  Or, shall we say, it was, because with our latest RiffTrax short, the perfect title has been achieved.  We present to you: Behavior of Domestic-Pigs in a semi-natural Pig-Park.  It has everything: unnecessary capitalization! Unnecessary hyphenation!!

Yes, pigs, everyone's favorite raw material for bacon, finally are the subject of their own short.  But these are not the lovable pigs you're used to.  These are rough and tumble semi-natural pigs that make Hogzilla look like Babe, and make Babe look like some sort of high voiced, sheep-befriending wuss!  You'll never look at your breakfast ham steak the same way again after you watch two boars butt heads in a vicious dispute over some semi-natural turf.  And you'll abandon your ham steak altogether as you excuse yourself to go vomit in the bathroom once you witness the horrors of a pig process known as Parturition.  Fortunately, a bewildering Scottish narrator is on hand to confuse the issue even further.

Mike, Kevin and Bill riff this one from the confines of their own semi-natural Pig-Park, which they have entitle Xanapig.
