A deal to kiss a pig is a deal until there are complications with the pig. The Kansas City, Missouri, School District issued a press release last night saying Primitivo Garcia Elementary School principal Joe Marlow would kiss a pig this afternoon as part of a deal to reward students for reaching full participation in the public library system. But this morning, Marlow's date to lock lips with a pig was canceled "due to complications related to the pig."

Wait! This just in from KCMSD spokesman Andre Riley: "I know this sounds crazy, but they just got a replacement pig." So game on, kids!



The pig kissing will take place at 2 p.m. at

Garcia Elementary (1000 West 17th Street in KCMO). Marlow made the pig-kissing promise to get the last dozen students to turn in applications for a library card -- so now all of Primitivo Garcia's students will be able to take part in the Kansas City Public Library's summer reading program. Oh, and they were already rewarded with ice-cream parties. Makes me wish I'd attended Primitivo Garcia Elementary.

At least the kids can keep their faith in their principal's word.
