    Captain Caveman and Bo Bice and The US Quarter ad Taylor Hicks cracked me up. The Sleestack was pretty funny, too.

    Pigs Are Worth It

    Pig song: download it from styTunes?

    LONDON (Reuters) - In what they say is a last-ditch attempt to save Britain's pork industry, dozens of pig farmers gathered in London Thursday aiming for an Internet hit with their song "Stand by your Ham."

    The song -- which reworks Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man" with a porcine theme -- is intended to alert the public to a sector that farmers say is being pushed to extinction by greedy supermarket chains and rising feed prices.

    "Stand by your ham," runs the chorus. "Sausages, pork and bacon/Help us stay in business/Because our pigs are worth it/Stand by your ham."

    With little singing experience but fuelled by enthusiasm and bacon sandwiches, the 20 to 30 farmers hope to rely on affection for traditional British pork products from pies to sausages.

    It will be available for download from the weekend from the website Pigs Are Worth It

    "It's a lighthearted way of drawing attention to a very serious issue," Yorkshire pig farmer Richard Longthorp told Reuters by telephone from the recording session.

    "If this doesn't stop, then as sure as eggs is eggs, the industry is going to disappear."

    The farmers say they lose more than 20 pounds ($39.09) a pig after unprecedented rises in feed prices fuelled by soaring global cereal prices due to higher fuel costs, competition from biofuels, increased demand from Asia and drought in Australia.

    The National Pig Association says surveys show consumers are willing to pay more to keep a high-quality British pig farming -- which farmers say puts animal welfare first -- in business. They want politicians to put pressure on retailers.

    "Hopefully we will have a couple of stars," said National Pig Association chairman Barney Kay, who penned the alternate words. "I don't think we'll be at the Brits next year but you never know."

    Stand By Your Ham

    I haven't heard the song yet, but I already love it. Can't wait to hear it.
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.

    This is cute. It's about an amazing little squirrel.

    Stand By Your Ham is now up if you want to check out the video. Pigs Are Worth It - The Pig industry is losing £6 every second.

    lyrics:

    Sing along to Stand By Your Ham:

    Right now it's hard to make a living
    Rearing all your pigs for pork and Ham
    Supermarkets make all the money
    We don’t make any money
    And that’s quite hard to understand

    But if they gave us a little more money
    Gave us farmers, a fairer share.
    Coz we take good care of our pigs
    We’re so proud of them
    To us they’re more than pork and ham

    Stand by your ham.
    Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
    Help us to stay in business
    Because, our pigs, are worth it.

    Stand by your ham.
    Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
    Keep givin' all the help you can
    Stand by your ham

    So if you love your British breakfast
    The crackling on your Sunday roast
    Keep asking for local produce
    We work hard to bring it to you
    Look for our Mark on pork and ham

    Stand by your ham.
    Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
    Help us to stay in business
    Because, our pigs, are worth it.

    Stand by your ham.
    Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
    Look for the Mark whenever you can
    Stand by your ham

    Stand by your ham.
    Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
    Look for the Mark whenever you can
    Stand by your ham
