Sometimes, a little sizzle and squeak makes the day go by quicker. With that in mind, here's a pig's, umm, eye view of the traditional pig race at what amounts to a 4H fair in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Because while gambling is fine and betting on races is fun, everything is better with bacon.

And if you hurry, you can still make it to visit - the fair, which promises many barnyard and dairy-related delights, runs through October 18.

Or, you can just head to Wisconsin for the weekend.
