Written by Ike Morgan: DEXTER - So you think all those soccer moms, cheerleader moms, and softball moms can be a bit frothy at the mouth when it comes to urging their little Suzy or little Billy on? Well, look out, cuz you aint seen nothing yet.
Yep, I'm speaking of pig scramble moms. Pig scramble moms make the aforementioned moms look like Miss Polly Purebred out on a Sunday picnic.
The pig scramble mom is a unique creature indeed. How they avoid popping every vein in their head while they scream at little Suzy or little Billy to get the @#%$#!!! pig, I have no idea. How they don't blow there own eardrum out with the roar and shriek that comes out of their mouth is also beyond me.
If ever there was an exhibition of these most feared moms then it was at Maine's largest pig scramble held as part of Dexter's Wild West Weekend and sponsored by P& L Country Store.
If I had a choice between tangling with a crazed wolverine or a pig scramble mom I'd take the crazed wolverine and count my blessings. A 260-pound steroid soaked middle linebacker in the NFL would probably choose the wolverine too.
And don't think that when the pig scramble competition is over all those pig scramble moms turn back into the lovable mom we all know. No way. Time to take it to the parking lot and get into a good old fashioned shouting match, soon to be brawl, with another pig scramble mom who didn't like the way your little Suzy or little Billy ran in front their little Suzy or little Billy when chasing the pig.
Thank goodness for the Dexter Police.
