Signs, Signs

While on vacation in Northern Wisconsin last summer we saw many interesting sights - none more interesting than these.

On top of a bar there was a snowmobile. I'm assuming that it was not driven up there during a heavy snowstorm.  But that was not the most interesting part.  Posted on the side of the bar was this sign.

A big sign
A barbecue
Horse Shoe Tournament
Live music
And as an added bonus - written in at the last minute
Pig  Wrestling - at 4:00

I have a few questions about this.
Are pigs wrestling pigs?
Are men wrestling pigs?
(I say men because I doubt women would want to wrestle a pig after a long day of wrestling a family)
Are pigs wrestling chickens or other farm animals?
Do the pigs wear little wrestling outfits?
Who sews their outfits?
And what do they have written on their capes?  Super Pig?
Who signs up?
The Pigs?
The Men?
And if it is the pigs - how do they plan to write their names?
And do they even  know their names, let alone know how to write?
And who is supposed to call Barb, the men or the pigs?
And who is Barb that she got this whole thing going?

Signs, signs - sigh .  .  .

This is fun! I hope the pigs don't mind the fun. I've seen more of this since we moved to Western Washington (although I did attend the Ugly Dog Contest in Calif. once). My favorite around here so far are the lawn mower races at our Irrigation Festival in May.
