Greenwich, Connecticut, August 16, 1949 - Howard L. Ross made a two inch tall pig. He uses the snout for a bottle cap lifter and he uses the tail to pull a cork. For this he has been given American Design Patent Number 154,880. He showed us pigs in black, red, cream, yellow, and green. We wonder if he will make a blue pig?

Ross's pig is packaged and sold as "Cap'n Corky" by his firm Howard L. Ross Associates in New York City.
