So at Hatchick's birthday party, a meeting of the Pigs' Historical Preservation Society--Straw House Committee gathered, with the stated purpose of getting the local homeowners to approve their request to resume building homes made of straw.
Unaccountably, the pigs never made it out of the meeting. The fact that they weren't actual pigs, but frosting-covered cupcakes, is believed by investigators to be highly suggestive as to their fate. Forensic evidence detected the presence of crumbs and beverages including pink lemonade and coffee.
The homeowners denied any knowledge of the whereabouts of the confectionery pigs, and attorney B.B. Wolfe said the crumbs, beverages, and discarded cupcake wrappers were mere circumstantial evidence, not incontrovertible proof that any criminal activity had taken place.
