“Piggy” is even more of a foundling than most: it’s crudely printed on cheap cardboard, and carries no date, copyright, or publisher.  It’s another variant on “Old Maid”; players collect pairs of such cheerful creations as Danny here, and try not to end up with Piggy.  Nobody wants to end up with Piggy.

    at first piggy looks like a lot of fun, but then you see those vacant, staring, remorseless eyes…danny the duck seems like the safer playmate.

    I think Piggy is really a pariah because he’s creepily cheerful. Like he’s cheering something on that doesn’t exist.

    I feel sorry for Piggy! I’ll be his friend!
