Here’s a story that might give you pause about what you choose for your Christmas dinner.

Pigcasso the Painting Pig was saved from the slaughterhouse in Australia because of his talents with a paintbrush.

He might have ingested much paint and brush hairs as he’s learning. But Pigcasso is becoming the Jackson Pollock of the porkers, providing color patterns that might be good for a human — much less a pig.

This story is reminiscent of Charlotte’s Web, where a spider saved a pig from a trip to the slaughterhouse. His work can be seen on his Facebook page and through the videos there that show him at work.

And it is also reminiscent of the talents of Arnold the Pig, a key character in the old television series “Green Acres” in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Do these talents make you rethink what might be on your table at Christmas or what you place between your biscuits?
