Good idea fxsterling.
They've a long tradition of a variation on that in rodeo in the southwest. Greased pig racing.
They cover a pig with bearing grease and turn him loose with a prize tied to his tail in one method. The other requires someone to actually catch the pig and carry it to a particular spot.
Usually all the men of a certain age in towns where they did it participated unless they could find a good excuse not to.
Lousy participation sport, but a good one for watching. Most of us figured out early that walking around the fairground afterward covered with grease, sweat, cow manure and dirt didn't add to the after-rodeo amusement.
Great idea pigs competing with just pigs, though.
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
