Mario Balotelli has bought himself a pet pig; what could possibly go wrong?

Posted by Chris Wright

As announced by the man himself on Twitter this morning, Mario Balotelli has gone and bought himself a pet pig, which he has bestowed with the name Super.

Mario has a pig. Why? Because of course he's got a pig, that's why! What could possibly go wrong?

That noise you hear is the collective wincing of every animal welfare employee on the planet. We give it a fortnight until a photo surfaces of Super with a wicked new camouflage paint job.

That or a photo of the two of them go-karting together.
