Wynonna, the newest A-list celebrity in the European Union

Somewhere in this blogging journey, I was advised to sign up for Google Alerts so that I would know which sites were linking to the7msnranch.com. Now I get an e-mail every day that tells me. Most of the sites have been harmless, and I haven't had to write any "cease and desist" letters.

Every once in awhile, though, a link shows up that leaves me completely flummoxed, like this one that appeared on Saturday.



What in the world is the EFSA and why would they be linking to my website?

I clicked on the link and found a 19-slide Powerpoint presentation from the European Food Safety Authority.



This has got to be a mistake, I thought, as I read through the presentation, with its scientific opinions and conclusions and uncertain meta-analysis due to heterogeneity among estimates. Oh yeah, this has alot to do with the 7MSN ranch.

Then I got to slide 16.


And there she was.



Of all the pigs in all the world, Mr. Greiner picked none other than the porcine princess herself to include in his presentation.

When I went outside to tell Wynonna about this development, she was not the least bit surprised that word of her stunning beauty had spread across the pond. She yawned and requested I not wake her again unless the news was really important, like her invitation from the Queen had finally arrived.

  1. I'm sitting here with coffee cup in hand, reading ... reading, and think I'd better put my cup down, something is going to become of this, and low and behold, by the end of your post I was laughing at Wynonna's comments! I'd better watch what I laugh at though ... stranger things have happened.

  15. I think I found the key to the mystery, right there at the top of page 2!
    "Transmission from wild boars to pigs is thought to be through the venereal route, as crossed piglets (striped) have been reported, at least in France and Portugal."

    Is it a coincidence that Her Royal Porkiness appears, in fact, stripe-y in that picture?
    Hmmmmmmm????

  20. Europeans have always been about style and Wynonna is the Audrey Hepburn of Pigs. It's only a matter of time before the House of Chanel is clamouring to dress her.
