What Happened When Stephen Colbert Met a Delicious New Pig Breed


Carl Edgar Blake II might be the world’s first celebrity pig farmer. A big profile in the Times last month introduced him to people who might not regularly keep up on their Iowa pig news, and last night he hit The Colbert Report. Why’s Baker famous? Well, the programmer turned farmer is trying to raise the world’s most delicious pigs, cross-breeding Chinese and Russian varieties of the animal to create the Iowa Swabian Hall, full of fat and flavor. As you can see in the clip, they’re also pretty cute.
