Happy Fourth of July! When Pigs Fly!

Matt Doolin says:“This ain’t no smoke and mirrors. The pig flies high. Happy Fourth of July!”

A Topanga carpenter, who’s been around the block a time or two, comes clean: he’s the flying pig sculptor. You know, the pink one that’s been flying above the Boulevard for the past 10 years and you always wondered how it got there? Who made it? Did you know she also has a few-hundred-pound twin who’s been flying over Box Canyon for five years? And the other day, catching the holiday spirit, he got all dressed up for the Fourth of July. As a special bonus (instead of fireworks), this patriotic pig comes with his own chemtrails. In prime moments, if you’re lucky, and driving up Box Canyon Road, you’ll see him blowing clouds of smoke out of his pug-nosed snout and…well...er…other places. Who’s this mystery artist with a comic twist in our midst? Chris Budzin, originally from Indiana, has been a Topanga resident for 20 years and a loyal and capable builder to many of his neighbors. He sees to it pigs really do fly…all over…and so can you.!
