    What is a good name for a flying pig?

    This is just a fun question. 



    Do we call it Pigasus?  Or should we call it Chrysaor?  Or, how about naming it Sæhrímnir?

    How about pig phoenix or pigoenix.

    Maybe pigcaris? Reminiscent of the son of Daedalus who to escape imprisonment flies by means of artificial wings but falls into the sea and drowns when the wax of his wings melts as he flies too near the sun.

    or how about Apigche, after Apache North American A-36 attack/dive bomber variant of P-51

    Armapigdon? lol good question jim! :-)

      And here I thought Apigche was the name for a helicopter.

      Armapigdon?  Why not?  I suppose Orwell might have argued that pigs are entitled to 2nd Amendment protections also,

    Why not name it Hillary Clinton? I think that's a fine name for a flying pig.

      Oddly enough, the first pig nominated for President goes to a pig named Pigasus, who was nominated August 23, 1968.  Five days later, riots broke out. 

      In 2016, Hillary was nominated.  Oddly enough, riots broke out.

      I like the Heaven Bound Hocks.

      Wild Blue Porker might be a good one too.  Could make a song from it:

      "Off we go, after the Wild Blue Porker,
      frying high! the bacon is done."

      Hmmm, Ya think maybe grown, mature, semi-intelligent adult writers, sitting around trying to come up with names for a flying pig, is any indication we're in serious need of a job, a hobby...maybe a life?? I'm slightly concerned myself.

      So of the three of us, one grown, one mature, and one semi-intelligent adult writers, you are slightly concerned? You must be the mature one! It's obvious which I am since I'm only getting this half right..

      Grown, mature, and semi-intelligent adults are allowed to have fun too.

      I hope.

      For our sake, I hope it's allowed.  Otherwise I for one, am in really big trouble!!
