Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #572 - Territorial Disputes

The Pig War is some fascinating stuff - yes, it really did exist, and there might have been fighting if Rear Admiral Robert Lambert Baynes hadn't refused to follow orders and engage American soldiers in battle, as "two great nations in a war over a squabble about a pig" was ridiculous. There are some great quotes from it, too, like "It is up to you to keep your potatoes out of my pig."

Anyway, when I think of global warming, I think of the Pig War. I might be the only one who does.
