This pig's face is the visual embodiment of 'fucked up but happy'
During recent flooding in Yibin county, in China's Sichuan province, an unknown photographer captured this picture of two men rescuing a pig from a flooded outbuilding. The hog in question – with the blissed-out smile of someone who has just washed down diazepam with a glass of wine – is the visual embodiment of 'fucked up, but happy'.
Since Reddit users love nothing more than to milk a joke far beyond the point of absurdity, it didn't take long before the picture was uploaded to the Photoshop Battles subreddit to explore the sillier realms of human creative endeavour.
And here are the magnificent results:

Face swap is like pizza: you never get tired of it.
