At first I thought it was from the Broadway version of Orwell’s Animal Farm, then I tracked down the actual origin: a 1907 burlesque by Pathé called “Le Cochon Danseur” (The Dancing Pig).

Here it is in all (or most, anyway) of its creepy glory.

dude how did you FIND THAT!

Some people can do backflips, others can find absolutely any damn thing on the internet.

I happen to be in the latter group.

Although backflips are fucking cool.

that was fucking weird.

Are there tutorials on Youtube to train this skill?

Really friggin’ creepy, but it’s pretty damn impressive considering how old it is.

Hey guys, there’s this really cool new website I just found. It’s called google.com. If you type in the words “pig,” “in,” “top,” “hat,” “tongue,” and “gif” into this site, the first link that pops up mentions some crazy french video called “Le Conchon Danseur.”

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=pig+in+top+hat+tongue+gif

If you then go to this other brand new website (that I just found out about) called youtube.com, and type in “Le Conchon Danseur” into its search bar this video of a pig shows up.

Wow, this new information superwide web is just mind-boggling.

I’m guessing Varqanir did something very similar. On the other hand, he could be some sort of internet ninja who scoffs at search engines and instead sneaks up on websites under the cover of night.

All sarcasm aside, if you know what words to use, you will eventually find what you’re looking for. Even in the land of abbreviation and emoticons, diction still counts for something.

2:06 until the end, w t f?

Well, yeah, but Varqineer pulls the strangest references in the PWI forum. I figured there must be more to it than google.

Maybe he reads books too. I dunno.

Well, considering he left the room wearing nothing but his undergarments, arm in arm with a girl, what do you think?

Damnation! You have uncovered my secret!

You win, sir.

The actual search terms I used were indeed pig in top hat tongue.

Just because you can find anything on the internet, why would you want to?

Especially pigs in top hats tonguing.
