Minnesota State Fair! Swine Barn! The largest hog: 1200 odd pounds sitting with a gruesome look on his ugly face, displaying boorish, silly looking teeth.

A young lad--eight years old?--hops into a pen with two large pigs--a black and piebald, brandishing a spanking switch.
Spank, spank, spank. "Get up!"
A reluctant piebald is on its feet. "Now we can have some fun!" The lad leaps onto the pig's back--"Wheee, whheeeee, wheeee," exclaims the excited piebald, running with brisk short steps, circling the pen. The lad pops off the pig, expertly wielding the spanking switch, with short wrist snaps, seemingly aimed at piebald's anus. Andy and Jewish-looking fellow in rumpled Bermudas are laughing their heads off, encouraging new rounds of spankings and ridings. A regal looking woman dressed in a sari stands to the side of the goings on with a stern expression--her body language indicates she isn't amused.

There's an abrupt change in the proceedings. An adult--the father? with swarthy complexion has wrested the switch from the lad's hand, and replaced it with a combing brush. As we leave the building, the lad is busy feeding and brushing the pigs--the mirth gone from the previous festivities. Too bad.

By the way, the leaf is cut from the side of a Tripel Karmeliet from Belgium, copper foiled and soldered back together with lead free solder. It's about 3 1/2" long by 2 3/4" wide with a curvy 3 1/2" copper stem with a ball bearing swivel for twirling. And did I mention it's a unique home decor?
