PORK CHOPS


In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs.
Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely;
and due to their tiny size,
they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery,
suddenly started to decline in health,
 although physically she was fine.
The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had
caused the tigress to fall into a depression.

The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate
another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country,
the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs
of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother..

The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species.

The only orphans' that could be found quickly,
were a litter of weanling pigs.

The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and
placed the babies around the mother tiger...

Would they become cubs or pork chops?

Take a look...you won't believe your eyes

Did I read it right??

Many sign managers really do need proof readers.
 But I hope they never get one, what else would cause laughter ?


Just in case Batman forgets?

Then, how should I get in? 

Geez, not even an emergency phone?

And you thought that particular personality trait
wouldn't look good on your resume...  

Excuse me???

Oops, not secret anymore!!

Sounds tasty doesn't it?

McDeath?

Interesting marketing angle!

Another dream come true...

NO! The other right!

A fine example of rocket science

Hope the emergency's not too urgent!

To calm those stressed rabbits.

OY!!

Here's just a few of the competitors.

and Funnel Cakes!


Pioneer Park, where the Festival is held,
 is right across from the F.D.E.S. Hall which was built in 1914.


F.D.E.S. stands for The Festa do Espirito Santo,
"The Festival of the Holy Spirit"

The majority of the Newman’s Portuguese community
hail from the islands of the Azores, 930 miles off the coast of Portugal.

An annual Festa is held each year honoring the Holy Spirit, and with a nod to Queen Isabella of Portugal, who gave freely to the poor, the Festa is open to all at no charge. Festivities begin with the bodo de leite, or parade of animals, Saturday morning.

Festivities continue throughout the weekend.
After Mass on Sunday, the traditional Festa meal of sopas—tender meat slowly stewed with broth, cabbage, and bread—is served to all at the F.D.E.S. Hall.  Auction and bazaar follow all in a festive and family friendly atmosphere.
