30-50 Feral Hogs: Why This Isn't a Joke

If you've been online in the past two days, you might have noticed that the internet is erupting with memes, jokes, information, and even an interactive game, about 30-50 feral hogs. What the heck is going on, you might ask? Well, what started out as a serious question by a Twitter user amidst America's seemingly never-ending gun reform debate is nonetheless a genuine question that we must address. The famous question goes as follows: "Legit question for rural Americans - How do I kill the 30-50 feral hogs that run into my yard within 3-5 mins while my small kids play?". While the specificity of this question has driven many to hilarity, feral pigs in America are no laughing matter. They can wreak irreversible damage on ecosystems, endanger native plant and animal species, and can even harm or kill humans. Here's what the deal is with feral pigs in America.

What a time to be alive, riight? In all fairness here, Sonic Adventure 2 did feature one of the greatest, catchiest songs ever in a Sonic game. Someone out there decided to take their appreciation for the iconic song a step further, and started up a petition to change out the U.S. National Anthem for the Sonic Adventure 2 song itself. The Change.org petition reads as follows:

"NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been under fire recently for refusing to stand during the performance of our country's national anthem "The Star-Spangled Banner." Because of the injustices occurring in the United States of America, the 49ers player disagrees with the message being conveyed by Francis Scott Key's lyrics. 

"The obvious solution would be to rid our nation of the injustices Kaepernick is protesting. However, that would take a lot of hard work and determination that we've clearly been incapable of to this point. So, instead, I suggest to President Barrack Obama that we change the national anthem to Ted Poley and Tony Harnell's more upbeat and less controversial "Escape from the City" as featured in the smash-hit video game Sonic Adventure 2. 

"Tell us, America, would you rather be reminded of the constant violence and threats faced by the soldiers of 1812 to get to this still-divided point in U.S. history or be set free by the rush of danger lurking around every turn as you follow your rainbow at the speed of sound?"

Clearly a joke, but now we definitely have to listen to the song!
