The Pig Symbolizes Nothing
 
Seriously. There is nothing of which the pig is symbolic. It's just a pig.

Well, it symbolizes bacon.

No, it is bacon. One cannot symbolize one's self.

Hm...now I'm starting to want to symbolize myself some bacon for breakfast tomorrow.

Fat/dirty people or things?

I knew that the Chinese had to have some pig year or symbol so I looked it up on the wikipedia:

In Chinese culture, the pig is associated with fertility and virility.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig_%28zodiac%29

Other stuff:

The pig is the archetypal symbol of plenty, healing, and shape shifting.

interesting is the fact that this is suppose to be Celtic, but this is also describes to the Pig character in the Chinese story the monkey king.(or maybe thats dragonball I am thinking about ^_^ can't remember)

I never said that pigs could be symbolic of nothing, I said the pig symbolizes nothing. Meaning a specific pig. A very specific pig.

I beg to differ. See, I've been playing The World Ends With You. The pig symbolizes frustration, it symbolizes that which you want but cannot get, it keeps getting away. Stop running from me! GET BACK HERE BITCH! I'M GOING TO FUCKING KILL YOU SOMEDAY!

Yeah.

Presumably neither. More likely to be the former than the latter. The pig that washed up on the beach, during the storm, while Hand was editing Will's fictionalities.
