Fun Pig Facts

Did you know that Pigasus was a name used to describe a flying pig? While Pegasus referred to a flying horse in Greek mythology, Pigasus referenced a flying pig! Pigasus was also a character in the Oz books written by American writer Ruth Plumly Thompson. Well known author John Steinbeck also referenced himself as Pigasus which to him meant “earthbound but aspiring”. Each time Steinbeck signed on letters or inside his books, he would draw a fat little pig with wings and then letter his name as “Pigasus”. Steinbeck reasoned he was not fit to be compared to Pegasus (winged horse) and said the little pig was symbolic in that man must try to attain the heavens even though his equipment is meager.
