Raymond Watts Retires Pig Due to Lack of Pig-Related Puns

LONDON, UK—Raymond Watts, the man behind the industrial rock band Pig, has announced that he is retiring the project after running out of pig-related puns with which to promote it.

For over 30 years, Pig has been creating and performing music that has gained a cult following. With their unique sound and style, Pig has stood out in the industrial rock scene with a penchant for pig puns, which have become a part of their branding and marketing.

From album titles like "A Stroll in the Pork," "Pigmata," and "The Swining" to song names like "Hamstrung on the Highway," Pig has always found a way to incorporate pig-related words and phrases into their work. This has undoubtedly helped the band stand out, but it seems that the well has run dry.

In an interview with Brutal Resonance, Watts stated, "It's just become too difficult to come up with new pig puns. I've been doing this for over 30 years, and I think I've exhausted every possible pig-related word or phrase. I don't want to keep repeating myself or recycling old puns. It's time to move on."

Watts went on to explain that he doesn't want to compromise the integrity of the band's work by forcing pig puns that don't work. He feels that it's better to end on a high note and retire the band than to continue and potentially dilute his legacy.

Fans of Pig are understandably disappointed by the news, but many are supportive of Watts' decision. Some have even come up with their own pig puns to show their appreciation for the band as a sort of conceptual crowdfunding.

It's always sad to see a band retire, but in this case, it's clear that it's for the best. Raymond Watts and Pig have left an indelible mark on the music world, and their legacy will live on through their music. While we may never hear another new pig pun from them, we can still enjoy their past work and appreciate the creativity and innovation they brought to the music industry.

PIG's official statement regarding the retirement contains one final pun which Watts claims to have been saving the pun for this exact occasion.
