Giant Boar At Indiana State Fair—Wash Your Hands Even If You’ve Only Looked At It

IMG_1995

Above is a picture of what is said to be the second largest boar in the world. The word boar in this case seemed to describe a male domestic pig and not a wild undomesticated pig.  

I took this picture last week at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis. Here is the link to the Indiana State Fair. The fair runs through August 23 so there is still time for you to attend.

I have a picture of the world’s largest boar that was in a nearby pen. But this picture is better.

The big “Please do not touch” sign seemed to be as much about Swine Flu as the fact that the boar might attack you.  

Around the swine pavilion at the fair where many posters instructing you to wash your hands after visiting the exhibit. The signs said that if you do not wash your hands after visiting the exhibit, that you might contract the swine flu.

Here is the link to my seven swine flu poems. 

Here is how the Mayo Clinic says you should wash your hands

  • Wet your hands with warm, running water and apply liquid soap or use clean bar soap. Lather well.
  • Rub your hands vigorously together for at least 15 to 20 seconds.
  • Scrub all surfaces, including the backs of your hands, wrists, between your fingers and under your fingernails.
  • Rinse well.
  • Dry your hands with a clean or disposable towel.
  • Use a towel to turn off the faucet.
