Today’s fun fact is courtesy of May being Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Other than humans, pigs are the only animals that can get sunburned. OK, astute readers will point out the fallacy of that as their folliclly challenged dogs or cats can get burned but this makes for a funnier “fact”. I know many of you like your bacon fried but don’t fry your own bacon. Use sunscreen. Find at more ways to prevent skin cancer this month at Cancer.org.

I guess we should be buying sunscreen for all those poor pigs now.
Do Wombies go out in the sun?
I prefer my basement laboratory.
And Chocolate melts outside
We had roast piggy for dinner last night. His skin was nice & crispy. I guess oil was the wrong lotion to use
What Binky said.
Have a fabulous day and weekend. 🙂
Thanks if you are on the boat, wear your sunscreen
I live in Germany so my risk is lower than when I lived in Missouri.
Though I’m keeping my eyes peeled to funky spots and moles because I have had plenty of sun burns.
Near the Alps? Wouldn’t higher altitude make you more susceptible?
A good message to highlight Bearman. That’s one very e=relaxed pig. I always make sure to wear a hat on sunny days. I forgot this important rulke about a month ago & moy little bald head was very red & sore.
I was going to say you need to keep that head covered
I actually knew pigs could get sunburn! Not sure where I learned this. I thought elephants could also get sunburned?
Probably all animals to some extent. That’s why I changed it to Many people think haha
Hot dog!… or pig. Or pork hot dog. Or whatever.
That’s not kosher
I went to a cookout the other day and I ate a hot dog and it didn’t even occur to me to ask if it was beef or pork. I think it was pork. That’s what I get for making a pig of myself.
Don’t ask don’t tell policy
Plus sunscreen doubles as a skim moisturizer which means fewer wrinkles! 😀
did you make that up?
It’s why they love mud so much!
And women pay extra for a mud bath
Great public service announcement. “Eat more Bacon” was the message right?
Bacon slathered in sun screen…yep
Skin cancer is nothing to oink at!
Can you smell what I am talking about
