Guys, the world is an insane place to live. The Internet is currently ablaze, much like the barn that was on fire in Wiltshire in the U.K. in February. Brave firefighters risked their lives to rescue 18 piglets and two sows from the burning barn. Six months later, the farm manager thanked the firefighters for saving the lives of these pigs by serving them those exact pigs in sausage form. Do you see how bonkers this is? What are we doing here, folks? Literally nothing makes sense anymore.
Way back in February, when the world was still innocent and good, 18 piglets and two sows were saved from a burning barn in the U.K.
It was a miracle.
These porky pigs were saved!
Just look at these adorable fuzzy bums (not the actual piglets saved from the fire, but just as cute, we're sure).

Now that they were saved from the fire, these piggies would have all the opportunities that other pigs have.
This little piggy could go to the market, this little piggy could stay home, this little piggy could have roast beef, and this little piggy could have none. They could even run wee wee wee all the way home if they wanted to!
The world was their oyster.
They'd be able to frolic in the farm fields forevermore, grow to be old, proper swines, and live the charmed lives that other pigs do, right?

So so wrong.
A mere six months after firefighters rescued these piglets, they were turned into sausages and served to the very firefighters who saved them.
They didn’t even have a chance to learn how to herd sheep (Babe) or make friends with a bear (Winnie the Pooh) or befriend a freakily intelligent spider (Charlotte’s Web) or take over a farm and lead a communist revolt against humans (Animal Farm).
Instead of becoming worldly farm animals, they became minced meat. Literally.
Farm manager Rachel Rivers came up with the idea to thank the firefighters with sausage from the very pigs they saved.
The firefighters were grateful and had a little barbecue.
