That's a hog, not a pig. We need to keep Mr Piggy from getting overly confident. Maybe an old MG. Or a tricycle. A tricycle may be more his speed.

Okay, so going with my USA-side existence for the time being, I'm not certain which is appropriate since I don't know Mr. Piggy's age. But since he's from the UK I can see your point. If he were of a certain age, I could definitely push for the Harley. But, in deference to his UK-ness, I'll respectfully go with piglet and thus suggest a unicycle or a scooter. Now roller skates are another option. But, you really have to consider the Harley before you rule it out entirely.

In the United States, the term "pig" refers to a younger domesticated swine weighing less than 120 pounds (50 kilograms), and the term "hog" refers to older swine weighing more than 120 lbs. In Great Britain all domesticated swine are referred to as pigs.

Several valid points. But I wonder if we shouldn't consider the mental state over the physical? Considering the "light weight" and … possibly … juvenile adjectives that may or may not have been used in conjunction with "his fenderness" he may qualify as pig no matter the physical measures used.

" ... state of mind ... ." Would that be before or after I brooch the possibility of our starting the show sooner. 17 DAYS ... 20 HOURS ... 31 MINUTES ... 59 SECONDS is a very very very long time to have to wait. I think I could make the argument for cruel and unusual punishment.

For some reason I see him in a Morgan Three Wheeler...

Just to drag us back to marginally "on topic" …

Nom may be onto something. Not "on" something (we don't want to know because then we are culpable), onto something. Piggy has always resorted to the red outline. Take nom's idea, the scriv logo halo'd by the over lords and I think we are very very close.

This could work, but I'm rather partial to the cookie jar idea. After all, gotta keep up my strength once that day of all days arrives whereupon I'll be ... we'll be presented with the quest of the halo'd NIAD chalice ... or some such.

But, yes, I can see the red outline thing working. Branding, huh? Sounds commercial ... downright capitalist.

I thought Animal Farm was about the futility of communism?

Also, t-shirts and logos are highly unlikely to feature:
- animals
- me
- LitNLat logos

Yes. BUt read the book again. In the end the Pigs become the overlords that are essentially circumventing communism and acting like "greedy capitalists". That was my point in my multipage report and I stick to it no matter what those teachers say!

I have to object (unless the overlords have dictated otherwise).

I read Animal Farm on Jun 8th, 2013. I gave it 3 stars, and the review:
"Does exactly what you expect it too."

It might be clever when your 11 and OMG how clever is metaphor, but as an adult... it's a pretty average book.
