From top: This morning’s Northern Territory News; ‘F**k It and Apples


The animals’ owner Greg Dick said tourists were often taken aback at the sight of the kangaroo — named “F**k It” — mounting Apples the pig by the side of the road.

But he says he’s powerless to intervene in the outback love affair.

“It’s quite an unusual thing,” he said.

“I tried to take the pig away the other day and the kangaroo nearly tore the fence down.”

“Harvard is a young Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pig. He is an extremely friendly fella who loves a good old scratch! Pot Bellied Pigs make lovely pets but they do require some specialised care. If you are interested in adopting Harvard or one of our other pigs [see link below] please call up to the shelter [Mount Venus Road, Rathfarnham, Co Dublin] and speak with PJ Doyle….”

No messers.

First catch your pot.

Kodachrome slides taken by cultural anthropologist Robert Creswell.

Creswell conducted a major study of the inhabitants of Kinvara, Co Galway in the mid-1950s,

He discovered they enjoyed bacon..

Cresswell died in 2010 and donated his archive of black and white photographs, colour slides, 16mm film footage, documents and notes etc. to the nation. He also insisted the hoard remain copyright free. Bit of a dude to be fair.
