For me, this piece was a humorous way to address vegetarianism. I stopped eating meat a few years ago after watching a series of videos about farming and meat production. I have since found that I enjoy so many alternatives to farm produced meat products and I have a clear conscience that I try to have ethical dietary choices. I realize that this is what works for me and not necessarily others. I am not preachy about my choices, but why not bring it up in a fun playful way!
The flying pig represents the animals that have been freed, the angels who weren't so lucky and the chance we have of becoming a vegetarian society!
