Taxi Piggies

Lately, I've been noticing a lot of pig characters in Bangkok taxis. So, one day I asked a cab driver with stuffed toy porkers on his dashboard about the Thai fascination with this creature. He told me that anyone, including himself, with swine decorations was born in the Chinese year of the pig. That's probably true in most cases, but I'm guessing that some Thai cabbies just can't resist collecting chubby little playful piggy novelties.
