What about a swine? No, not Porky Pig, but a cuddlly Boar with the
swirl as the curly tail? Debian: so stable its Boaring!
Dress the boar up like a guard (I'm thinking like in one of the StarWars
movies), the boar guarding the firewall.
Or, was there a pig in Toy Story? Does Pixar use Debian on its boxes
and would they lend us non-exclusive rights to use the image?
