Hog Quotes by Winfield Scott, Ryan Seacrest, D. W Brogan, Si Robertson, Sigfried Giedion, Phil Robertson and many others.
We were so poor as kids. I didn’t even see a bathtub, running water, hot water, commode – we didn’t have any of that.

I’m not a ball hog at all. It may look like it, but I’m not.
American Rifleman and Field & Stream had ads for “varmint guns.” Another varmint was a ground hog because a horse would be going along and he’d stick his foot in a ground hog hole and break his leg.
