Or it could be Supper in a dip net.

 
Running trotlines in the Mississippi River backwater can get interesting when something starts swimming across in front of you.  At first my buddy thought that it was a beaver but when they got closer they saw that it was a piglet so out came the dip nets.  Yup, dipped that squealing sucker out of the water and it spent last night dressed and in the refrigerator....chillin'.  They plan to cook the whole thing for supper tonight.

You might be redneck, if you wear cowboy boots in a boat and catch your pork with a dip net.  :D :D :D

I took a screen shot of the video.  You can't imagine how that piglet was squirming and squealing.   :o
