  3. Misleading Info Embarrasses Sports Reporter

    A local reporter received a call concerning Razorbacks and their location. Eager to impress his new boss, the young reporter drove to the site with his assistant(Names are being withheld to avoid further embarrassment). Upon arrival they glance around the multi acre lot, looking for the Arkansas team. Finally they locate the owner around back and they ask ,"I was told the Razorbacks are here?" Reluctantly the owner answers,"Yes, they are. You're lookin at 'em." "But... these are pigs sir," the reporter replies. "Yes, they are, and mighty fine ones at that. Caught 'em myself." With a stunned look on his face, the reporter walks away, his face looking about as red as the car he drove.

  4. Pork-upine on the Loose!

    At the wheel of his Ford Razorback, our trusted correspondent Harrison G. Emm is looking for a porkupine that was sighted in the meat packing district. A witness confirmed that it was no hog-wash. "By the hair of my chinny chin chin, that swine was huffing and puffing like mad!" declared the pink faced observer."Let's hope he gets caught fast. Slaughtering Miss Piggy can be forgiven but going for Piglet? Let's skewer the bastard!"

    In a stunning admission, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) admitted publicly for the first time that there is no Razorback constellation.

    "I guess we never got around to it" said the director. "It took forever just to agree on the 88 constellations we have now. Do you know how hard it is to draw accurate lines on the inside of a sphere?"

    School children in an unidentified small country sent in this depiction of a proposed Razorback constellation.

    It doesn't look like much, but then neither do most of the other constellations.

    "We'll form a committee!" he promised.

    We all know what THAT means.

  6. Bacon Robbery at Razorback Inn
