Fame goes to your head, regardless of species


Chinese "Miracle" pig becomes stuck-up celebrity


BEIJING (Reuters) – A pig that survived 36 days buried in the rubble of May's massive Sichuan earthquake has been voted China's favorite animal, but the attention has made him fat, lazy and bad-tempered, state media said.

"It's gotten fatter and lazier by the day," it quoted staff as saying... And the pig is getting fed up with visitors, after initially being quite friendly.

"Now it just blocks the door to its bedroom when there are too many visitors outside. It's been increasingly difficult for us to convince it to open the door," the report said.
