Skin Cancer Awareness Month

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

    I guess we should be buying sunscreen for all those poor pigs now.

    What Binky said.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. 🙂

  3. Dave says:

    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.

  4. Tony McGurk says:

    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.

  5. benzeknees says:

    I actually knew pigs could get sunburn! Not sure where I learned this. I thought elephants could also get sunburned?

  6. Jason says:

    Hot dog!… or pig. Or pork hot dog. Or whatever.

  7. Bill Murphy says:

    Plus sunscreen doubles as a skim moisturizer which means fewer wrinkles! 😀

  8. David Hurley says:

    It’s why they love mud so much!

  9. Gruhn says:

    Great public service announcement. “Eat more Bacon” was the message right?

    Skin cancer is nothing to oink at!
