A special present for UberNerds - an unpublished Tanta post (written Dec 31, 2007):
And from Tanta's 2007 Post: A Very Nerdy Christmas (see her post for an explanation of the origins of the Mortgage Pig™)
There have been some misconceptions in the comments about Mortgage Pig™. I do not wish to enter a new year on the wrong track.
Mortgage Pig™ does not have a "name" except Mortgage Pig™. Assertions about Mortgage Pig™'s "name," "address," "job," "significant other," or favorite swill are not canonical. Anyone who asserts knowledge of such things in any communication, written or otherwise, is creating an Internet Urban Legend. Next thing you know they'll be telling you that you can Get Rich Qwik in RE investing.
