"Watching the skittle players," from In the Ardennes
by Katharine Sarah Macquoid, 1881.
Interestingly, we sent this image to a games aficionado, but he wasn't convinced that the pig was truly spectating skittles players. He felt that the pig's expression was inscrutable, and the so-called skittle players are out-of-frame. Yet the caption tells us what we're seeing; "case closed" as far as we're concerned. To paraphrase René Magritte, this is not a pig, anyway. If we can't roll with it, we'll never knock down any pins.
