Wiggles and Principal Rick LaBuhn stand by poster of the Valentine’s Day event at Crockett Elementary School.
Crockett Elementary School Principal Rick LaBuhn had an unusual Valentine’s Day date with a pig named Wiggles.
LaBuhn told the students at Crockett that in celebration of the Crockett Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) raising more than $300 at a recent fundraiser, he would “kiss a pig.” The “kiss” attempt took place in the afternoon in front of a full assembly of 600 students.
Wiiggles and his handler arrived and LaBuhn made every effort to secure the pig for a smooch, but Wiggles, it seemed, wasn’t having any of it. LaBuhn was even wearing a pig snout and ears, but Wiggles was still shy of a kiss. After several “battles” with the coy pig, LaBuhn had to give up.
The event surely amused the students, showed LaBuhn to be a good sport and caused no romantic cross-species public displays of affection. Wiggles could not be reached for comment.

A battle-weary LaBuhn gives it one more try.
