Tiny Pig Inherits Vast Fortune
The long inheritance battle over the Piggy-Wiggy family estate came to a close last week when a judge awarded greater than 80% of the fortune to young heiress, Henrietta. Leaked court documents, obtained by The Fluffington Post, reveal just how much the pig stands to inherit.
According to financial records introduced by the pig and her lawyers, the Piggy-Wiggy estate is valued at between $70 and $90 million. That is easily the largest porcine fortune in the world, handily outstripping the pig who stared in the movie Babe, whose net worth is estimated at around $2 million.
The estate includes millions in cash and stock holdings, as well as a good deal of luxury real estate.
Notable residences that Henrietta can now call home include an 8-bedroom mansion in the wealthy enclave of Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, a 15-bedroom, 12-bathroom “cottage” in Newport, RI and a 2,500 square foot condo on Central Park West, in New York, NY, valued at $12.5 million.

Piglet Drops 5 Pounds on Juice Cleanse
Looking ahead to bathing suit weather, local piggie Hamlet tried a number of diets in the hopes of shedding those winter pounds.
"He tried Atkins, South Beach. Nothing worked," says Jeremy Blinn, who goes to the gym with Hamlet on occasion. "Then he found this fruit juice cleanse thing on the Internet. A week of smoothies and he’s like a new man."
The piglet lost five pounds in the first two weeks, and plans to continue the cleanse through early April.
"It’s not a permanent lifestyle change," says Blinn. "But it’s a great way to kickstart a healthy metabolism."

Three Little Pigs Plan Reunion Tour
It’s been nearly three decades since the Three Little Pigs, Rufus, Terry and Josh, shot to fame after two out of three of their houses were infamously blown down by the Big Bad Wolf.  Now, a spokesperson for the pigs has announced that the trio is planning a worldwide reunion tour, set to kick off later this year in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  
This should come as happy news to the legions of adoring fans who have developed a thriving Three Little Pigs sub-culture on the Internet.  
"I am so happy right now.  This better not be a hoax," wrote superfan HuffAndPuff37 on the /r/ThreeLittlePigs/ sub-Reddit this afternoon.
The tour will include a two month European leg, followed by a three month swing through North America, before finishing off with stops in Australia in Japan next Spring.  The Big Bad Wolf is reportedly still enjoying his retirement in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and has no plans to join the tour.

Pig Unemployment Holds Steady Even as Economy Improves
Figures released from Pew today indicate that while unemployment is down overall, the needle hasn’t moved for pigs, particularly the young. In fact, unemployment has increased in some piglet communities.
"A lot of piglets came out of school without employable skills," says Fran Muchnik, career counselor. "Also, they’re super lazy."
