What's with the pig?


There's a dressed pig who appears repeatedly in the movie, what's his purpose?

reply

A writer thinking they're being clever no doubt but it serves as nothing more than a reference to Animal Farm.

reply

Yeah, Athena mentions Animal Farm and the fact that she nicknamed Crystal, Snowball but still, why put a pig in the crate with guns?

reply

Poor little thing might've gotten hurt.

reply

I don't even get why the pig was inside the huge wooden crate in the beginning. Doesn't make any sense. Sometimes Damon Lindelof is really out of control, more than usual.

reply

There surely is a weird allegoric reference/explanation for staging this scene that way. I'm not educated enough to get it though, lol.

reply

At the very least the pig connects the diplomat's car scene with the ranch. When they stop the car in the middle of the road they don't know where they are, and then they see the pig, so then they have a pretty good clue where they are.

I couldn't help but notice you assumptively gendered the pig as a him. You're lucky this isn't Twitter or I'd have you banned.

reply

What do you mean, how is relevant if it's a male or female pig?

reply

pepetoony is merely mocking the absurdity of Twitter and the mentalists that call it it home.

It might not be male. It might be female. It might identify as a potato. By assuming it's gender you are clearly a white supremacist male cis nazi /S
