Not at all sure what to make of this. The pig has had long-standing use as caricature in lampooning any number of human shortcomings: greed, gluttony, sloth, cunning. So first-blush look at this and you're like ”whoa, they're sticking it to somebody”.
But then you look... and look, and look. And then, well, who're they sticking it to? It's just a well-illustrated, silly... thing.
Strange, and a bit sloppy: Check out the reversed-type in the pigs at top, right-of-center... that went to print? "Ah, hell... nobody'll notice".
If you know different, let me hear about it. I've lost sleep trying to find some meaning.
