Funny Business with Jane Wells

Readers Are Boar-ing


More possible nominees for our Name That Boar contest, honoring the prize-winning boar from last week's World Pork Expo. By the way, I found out the boar's real name, and I will reveal it after the contest. Monday I will pick finalists and put them up to a vote.
