At Pike Place Market in Seattle, there is Rachel, a giant bronze piggy bank that sits outside the main entry. It’s a popular spot for tourists taking photos and it does decent business, taking in between $6,000 and $9,000 annually. What interested me were the bronze hoofprints around the pig with a donor’s name on it, especially the one pictured here for “David Wright”. Somehow I doubt it’s David Wright, All-Star third baseman of the Mets but wouldn’t it be funny if it were? Yeah, it’s probably not him.
