Residents of the English town of Devizes, in Wiltshire were celebrating today after the revelation that local woman, Dandy Worzel has given birth to four piglets in the local maternity ward.
Doctors, who initially thought that Mrs Worzel was expecting twins expressed astonishment when four perfectly formed piglets popped out of the birth canal.
Attendant midwife, Siobahn McNeery told reporters:
"That was a strange one for sure. Strangest one I've ever seen in twenty plus years of midwifery. We were all expecting twins, and then the piglets appeared, but all credit to the medical team, they didn't bat an eyelid, not at all, at all, as the piglets emerged. Even though we were all expecting twins of the human persuasion. So we were."
The proud mother's husband, Angel Worzel has told friends privately that he has no idea why his wife should have given birth to four piglets instead of two baby human beings, because as as far as he knows, she's never been over friendly with any pigs.
He did say however that he was relieved that the piglets were all strong and healthy and that he was considering turning vegetarian in the near future.
