This little piggy was finally leaving his small village for the big city. Nerves mingled with excitement as he thought about the fine dining, fast cars and flashy living that awaited his near future.
Yet his first taste of the city doesn’t go too well. On his journey to the city, he encounters the city folk and there’s no warm conversation and friendly smiles to be seen. Rather, suspicious looks and cold sneers are what he is greeted with.
The big city welcomed the little pig with bared fangs, rejecting his different look. But the universe has sharper, more ferocious fangs, and when it flashes your way, you’ll be left jolted to the very bone.
