When I think of Christmas, I think of festivities and gifts, and holiday TV programming. Sketch comedy shows like Mad TV usually come up with some great parodies. This was shaping up to be one of them, until a pig came in and stole the show.
I suppose they should have known. You’re just asking for trouble by bringing farm animals in for a live taping. I guess maybe they were in a hurry and didn’t have time to find a properly house trained pig.
At any rate, the pig’s little faux pas garnered more laughs than the sketch probably would have otherwise. I wonder if it got a bonus for that?
