Giant pro-Obama flying pig lost in atmosphere – $10,000 reward offered for return

No, you’re not stoned – that headline is correct. And no, this blogger isn’t stoned either. However, I can’t say the same for the crowd of thousands at last weekend’s Coachella Music Festival who looked on as Roger Waters’ giant, helium filled pig floated up and away as he performed a set that included the complete album of his and Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Dave Bullock at Wired, who also snagged the photo, writes:

The pig was covered with political graffiti: “Don’t be led to the slaughter,” read one slogan. “Fear builds walls,” read another. A cartoon Uncle Sam painted on the pig held two bloody cleavers, and the porker’s belly read “Obama,” with a checked ballot box alongside…

If you happen to find the pig you’ll be rewarded with four lifetime passes to Coachella and $10,000. Hate to say it, but that’s a hella lot of bacon.
