Irish eye?

So I was looking at one of our Ireland guidebooks (it's definite- we're going in September) when I noticed something disturbing on the cover.

Do you see it?

How about now?


Okay, look at this grainy close-up:


Um, what the hell is up with that pig's eye? Too much Guinness?

It's a pig on crack. Or a pig that has consumed one too many pints of guinness.

Also, let me know if you want me to come with you to Ireland. K? Thanks.

ha ha--funny! You have a good eye to catch such a detail...no pun intended.

it's a cute pig nonetheless ;) One thing that occurred to me - maybe one of its eyes is green and the other is brown? i see that with dogs sometimes, and the lighter eye often appears larger.

Oooh, Ireland! Luke and I talked about taking a trip out of the country this year, but since we need to stash some cash for a house down payment, we're "downsizing" for a week-long Florida vacation this summer. We can hardly wait.

Also, for some reason that pig reminds me of the TNT version of Animal Farm (which I totally taped and still have to this day). Very creepy.

Not to spoil the fun, but I think it's just a malfunction at the print shop. Either that or it's a glass eye.

Isn't it uncanny how the pig's crazy eye is the exact same color green as the book's cover? ;)

Maybe the little girl is wearing the other green contact. I guess we'll never know for sure, since her eyes are closed...

It almost looks like the girl might be holding him just a little too tightly. lol

That pig looks like Seg's crazy-ass ghostie with the lopsided eyes.

He is possessed. Clearly. That little girl is in for a world of trouble.

Wasn't there a pig named Jodi in the "Amityville Horror"?

Well there you have it.
