The Snout Shows the Personality

28 Jun

Do you know about the Rorschach tests?  You may know them better as the ink blot tests.  I’ve been looking at them a lot lately trying to test my IQ.  Let me show you a picture and then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.  Take for instance the picture here to the right.  What do you see?  Most people would say a butterfly.  I see a dragon in full flight with the picture being taken over him.  See how it works?  I personally think, and this is coming from Dr. Bacon, that you can do the same thing with snouts.  Snouts are like fingerprints to humans.  We all look different.



Take my snout for an example.  Look closely at the markings.  What do you see?  Mom sees the outline of the character Mickey Mouse.  This makes me different from other pigs and their snouts.  What do you see? I like to refer to this strategy of looking at pig snouts as PigRorschach or AKA PigInk Blot.  I’ve got a couple of more snouts for you to examine below.  As you will see, I have a very unique and unusal snout marking.

    I had a pet pig as a kid. Pigs are really smart does your pig do tricks?

      But of course I can do things. I’m a very smart and talented piggy. I know my name and I come when called. I sit and lay down when mom tells me. I go potty on my own. Of course I don’t have to be told to do that – do you? Snort. I also can tell time. I have a great little clock in me. I know exactly what time to get mom up for work during the week. I know when it’s my bed time. I go to my room and get in bed on my own. And but of course, I write my own blog here. Wink.
