Caption Please: The Lounging Potbellied Pig

This month’s fascinating cover story in National Geographic explores how animals have become domesticated over time. Scientists believe the genetic makeup of some animals predisposes them toward domestication, as is the case here with our friend Daisy Mae, a miniature Vietnamese potbellied pig pictured lounging languidly in her home in West St. Paul, Minnesota. We couldn’t help wondering what potbellied pigs think about when lounging on couches, so we put the question to you. Put your best caption in the comments, and we’ll pick our favorite. Then go read the article, it’s fantastic.
