    I didn't catch this particular episode. But I do remember watching the episode on the pig farm outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. It was classic.

    Someone should write mike and let him know about our ag school and explain somethings to him, and while they're at it should also send a t-shirt so he can redeem himself on television.

    *nudge* It is the Hawkeye state.

    Unfortunately our backwards sisters to the East aren't too creative. They ripped off their mascot from the state's nickname and their uniforms from the Steel Curtain teams

    I beg to differ since we got permission to overhaul the uniforms like the Steelers and we borrowed the nickname from the state of IOWA!

    Re: Iowa Pig farmer on Dirty Jobs

    And a newspaper gave the state of Iowa it's nickname, which in turn was given to the SUI and therefore granted you a name to chant as you lay your offerings at it's altar.

    Two guys from Burlington who operated the Burlington "Hawkeye" newspaper lobbied to have the state nicknamed after their paper, which in turn was so named because of a somewhat bizarre fascination with this man:

    Chief Black Hawk

    The pig farmer in question did go to IA State as I went to school with him.

    Re: Iowa Pig farmer on Dirty Jobs

    Not to hijack this thread or anything, but does anybody else think that Discovery Channel should change their name to the Dirty Jobs Channel?? I mean seriously, everytime I go to Discovery lately Diry Jobs is on. It's like a couple years ago when all you could watch was American Chopper or Monster Garage. To me it would seem people get tired of watching the same show(s) night after night, especially when they're all repeats... I know I do...

    Hey, watch it there - without MythBusters (another Discovery Channel show) we wouldn't have had a raging, vicious, near murderous debate about whether a plane could take off of a treadmill.

    That and I really hope they bring back a second season of Fight Quest.

    I saw a bunch of promos for it about a month ago but haven't seen anything since... If they filmed it then I am sure they will air it...
