As cute as piglet?

As-salam =)

I personally don't find pig is cute, like seriously. Pig is just a pig, and not getting cuter even on the second view. Most of Muslim people don't say pigs are cute since pigs are forbidden to even touch ,nether less to eat. And it is sinful too! And, usually Muslim people don't feed the pigs - found by the road side or even at zoo. Not like other animals like cats, dogs, birds, etc, we feed them sometimes. I even feed stray dogs.

Same picture as in the facebook
As I was facebook-walking today, I had read this conversation of some teenagers, high school students in Labuan. You see, the friends had uploaded a picture of a piglet and tagged some of the friends. She was actually joking about saying the male friend is a piglet. But, he actually don't mind it at all! And he even says the piglet is cute and proud to be one. Sigh! Crazy huh? I was shock, really! And thought, "Oh, he may not a Muslim, even he has name like one!". So, I clicked his name and search for his religion. Subhanallah, he's a Muslim. Oh! 

Here are some interesting facts about pigs:
Interesting & Amazing Information on Pigs 
  • Pigs do not have functional sweat glands. They use water or mud for the purpose of staying cool in hot weather.
  • Pigs do not prefer to sit in mud. Infact, they prefer cleanliness much more than other animals. They use the mud only as a coolant in summers, that too out of necessity.
  • Mud also provides the pigs protection against flies and parasites, apart from being used as a form of sunscreen, which protects their skin from sunburn.
  • A female pig is called a sow, while the male is called boar. The baby of a pig is called piglet.
  • Pigs have such a well developed sense of smell that they can easily find things underground.
  • Many experts consider pigs to be more trainable than dogs or cats.
  • The largest pig till date was a Poland-China hog, named ‘Big Bill’. It weighed 2,552 lbs and had a height of 5 feet and a length of 9 feet. 
  • The scream of a frightened pig can measure 115 decibels, higher than the taking off noise of a jet engine (113 decibels).
  • Even though pigs have four toes on each hoof, they walk on only two of the toes. This makes them look as if they are tiptoeing.
  • The largest litter of piglets ever born included 37 piglets, out of which 36 were born alive and 33 survived.
  • A full grown pig can drink up to 14 gallons of water a day.   
This is the interesting facts as listed on the internet. But, seems like they missed TWO IMPORTANT POINTS here, which are:
  1. Pig, is an animal happened to be bisexual. 
  2. It eats on theirs or others poops.
Since it almost the end of the world, certain people will may have opinion about how cool to be bisexual. Am I right? I am not talking anything near the 'Sexual Merdeka' thing, or even a politic issue here! NO! Just, about pigs - sow, boar and piglet.

I am not MRS. KNOWEVERYTHINGS, so I might want to have do some more studies on pigs. I'll get the fact of why pigs are not so cute and dirty!
