Have you ever been at a waterpark and thought, “Why don’t PIGS have their own version of this?!” Erik Stegink did. The impish Dutch farmer all but built a bubbling mud jacuzzi and passed out piglet waterwings for his four-legged walking-bacon friends. According to British site The Metro:

A farmer in Holland has installed a mud slide for his pigs after being inspired by the flumes at a water park.

Erik Stegink mounted a disused slide he had bought from a nearby pool on his farmland.

And in no time at all his pigs were enjoying their own amusement park, but instead of water they were diving into mud.

One can only imagine the gush-gush-SLURRRP noises and happy oinks that followed. So the next time you order free-range, organic sausage, ask not where the pig was from … but whether it got to whoosh down a mudslide.
