Piggy in pink

My office mate has been amused with my affinity towards pink (especially since my back pack is so garishly pink). She recently attended a conference on information security and picked me up this great pressie!


Little did she know that I have a special affinity for piggies after certain somewhat disturbing adventures with a pig named "Smugglet" in college. One of my roommates had this little stuffed pig that she really enjoyed. Because of her affection for the poor thing, her 'friends' would play great practical jokes that involved poor Smugglet. Once, we hung him in effigy with a jerry-rigged noose from the patio drapery cords. However, my favorite all-time prank was when we put him between two slices of break and wrapped the Smugglet-sandwich in aluminum foil and placed him in the freezer.

Good times.

Briwei correctly identified the pig. It is the logo/symbol of an intrusion detection product called Snort.
