Pink Floyd advertised lawn ornaments in Dittmer for years before his surprise 2020 career change.

Pink Floyd the Pig

I tracked down Pink Floyd at his new location -- a barbecue restaurant in DeSoto. I called and got a waitress; she said that they do have a big pink pig, but she could not confirm it was Pink Floyd. Recent photos online of the restaurant show a pig identical to the one that was in Dittmer. Update: The Cafe Smok N Pi confirmed they purchased Pink Floyd -- in late 2019 during their buildout.

Pink Pig Named Floyd

After seeing Futurama's Bender earlier on the same road, our eyes were fully calibrated to lock on other hallucinatory statuary. This large pig pink lords over a lot full of concrete yard figures. It's part of Pat's Concrete business; Pat let us know the name of the pink pig sniffing a swirly glass globe is "Floyd." The lunatic is on the grass.
