Matt, it's Pink's pig, converted to B&W by decomposing the image to the value channel and adding grain with a GIMP plug-in.

The second Pink's pig, I should say: when Waters left the Floyd he took the original pink Pink's pig (the one that appeared on the Animals cover and in the '77 and '80 tours) with him. The remaining members got somebody to resign the pig with genitalia and a grottier appearance in order to bypass any possible copyright suits from Waters; the second Pink's pig toured with the band in '88 and '94.

During the '94 tour, when I actually got to see them (hooray!), it appeared with its mate during "One Of These Days" in a tower next to the stage and danced. At the end of the tune, the pigs toppled out of the towers. It was pretty freaking spectacular.

(That was more information than you were looking for, wasn't it?)

(Oh, and "resign" the pig should have been "redesign," obviously. Though "resign the pig" sounds kind of awesome.)

More information than I was looking for? Yes.

Interesting nonetheless? Yes.
