Muralwatch: “La gripe porcina,” in Westlake

La gripe porcina

Put all that Purell shit away, and forget about washing your hands. It cannot stop the real cause of swine flu: a puckish pig who comes in the night, when you’re asleep and dreaming, and drips viscous liquid contagion onto your pillow, all the while balanced on a skull. Don’t believe it? You better, bub: it’s memorialized in mural form in Westlake at the corner of 7th and Bonnie Brae (yes, that’s the Langer’s parking lot), and we all know that public art tells no lies.
