Default Sorry,,I need it explained

Pardon the person with heather growing out of his hair. But I've been on here a couple of years and seen this as the tag line line for gripes through all it's re-incarnations. Read it and wondered...

I now have to ask....What the heck is "Chasin Hogs" ?

Well, DavidB, I'd have to guess, but I think it's "chaise hogs" i.e., deck chair hogs.

Of course, as an Arkansan, I'd like to think it meant "chasing the Hogs" (U of A) football team because they're doing so well, but since they are now 2 and 5, maybe not!

David, if you were here you might go to a rodeo or a state fair. And you might see the "greased pig" chase. So, you aren't too far off .

Jenn,
There's no way we can exchange a Razorback Hog for any other man's sheep .

Take out the chasing part from the statement above and that is what you have on a cruise ship of Americans.
