2.4 milies, about 5 minutes
The way the pig flew

Susan Stolz called The Desert Sun this morning saying she and her husband found a glob of vinyl in their driveway yesterday at the Hideaway Golf Club in La Quinta. Not sure what it was, they threw it away. This morning, they read about the missing pig in the newspaper and e-mailed the following to Coachella organizers.

"It is entirely possible that I have at least part of your pig. My husband and I live at the Hideaway. We found a large pile of plastic yesterday morning on our driveway. It has some blue, yellow and silver paint. I must warn you that it is not in good shape. Maybe the balloon exploded or something. However, if you'd like to check it out, just let me know. "

"We went and got the pig out of the trash and put him in the garage," Stolz said. "We have laughed our heads off."

I went thru my 'pink floyd' phase in highschool collecting all their albums and watching the wizard of oz thing. good news! i grew up. I can't really listen to pink floyd anymore, at all. However, animals is legit, the song dog is nice. But! Atom heart mother is by far, and easily their best album. Holy shit, the first song off that album is like godspeed shit. Absolutely brilliant!

If you even gave a nanosecond of thought to the OZ thing, you're a disgrace to Pink Floyd fans. So, you're no loss

If they have only part of the pig, do they get only part of the reward? Can they sell the lifetime passes?

Gotta love the fact that a prop adorned with leftist messages is going to make a couple who live on a golf club richer.

Totally I feel the same way about Radiohead - it was totally high school.
Theres just nothing there annymore

Radiohead really do nothing for me, except for Kid A. Some good songs on there, but it's music I really enjoy. York's voice bothers me. Get over yourself.

Obscured By Clouds is underrated.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2008 6:27 PM

How stoned must the organizers of Coachella have been to not freakin' notice the pig going AWOL? Give me a case of whatever they were on! For some reason I now feel the need to fry up some bacon.

Posted by rockandrollguru | April 30, 2008 8:34 PM

my son has a pig like this one here - it's nice and it's still "alive"

Posted by congress | June 27, 2011 9:14 AM

Super cute story - I'm sure I would have to do this if my son would lose his fire car, with sleeping, eating, going to the park or visiting.
