(Newser) – Here's one thing you definitely don't want to find in your water source: 900 or so dead pigs. But that's exactly what Chinese officials have pulled out of a Shanghai river that serves as a city water source. But there's mystery added to the ick factor, notes the AP: City officials aren't sure were the pigs came from, whether they were dumped, or what might have killed them. They say there's no sign of any epidemic, and they emphasize that the water is being tested.

And Jesus asked the crazy man, "What is your name? Mob he replied" Jesus sent the pack of demons in the man into a nearby group of rooting pigs. The pigs then all jumped into the lake and drowned.

Corporate America and Right Wing corporatists in general hold China up as a model to emulate. No thanks.
