A dripping hog has miraculously appeared, beneath a chortling crow,on the rooftop of a famed coastal tavern, none other than the Snag Tavern of Ken Kesey’s movie, “Sometimes a Great Notion”. Although the Newport, Oregon Tavern goes under the name of BayHaven Inn, anyone walking down Fall Street at the junction of Bay Boulevard can witness the petroglyphic pigpatch seeping above the Logging/Fishing Tavern. 

The crow, although emitting a powerful purple aura (odd indeed, although authentic and not altered by Photoshop), appears to be a visual portent for the perplexing pandemic flu that has sparked a rise in Wall Street pharmaceuticals and the face-mask filter phenomena.

Could it be some sort of alien visitation?—coastal crap circle, cow pie mimic, or divine oinking annointment?  Will Paul Newman miraculously appear, like in Kesey’s movie, with his  Chainsaw, and cut a swath across the swinish symbol? Or will Animal Farm come flu?...I mean, true. The huge moth wing on the left is almost too much to take—bird/bug/pig—rubbing our faces in the dirt—a photo, perhaps, of Pandora’s apocalyptic pig pen. A pox on thee, I say!
