Swine Research Center

We've decided to add a new feature to our blog - something we call CU Sightings. As many of you know, since moving to Champaign-Urbana we have been enamored with the resplendent beauty of the verdant landscape and smitten with the rich cultural diversity of East Central Illinois. To celebrate and publicize the obscure and unheralded idiosyncrasies of the bustling metropolis that is Champaign-Urbana, we will be sharing with you, from time to time, some of the features, nay, monuments, that we hope will make this little neck of the woods your next vacation destination. Our first sighting, the University of Illinois' Swine Research Center, is right here in our own Village of Savoy. Sounds romantic doesn't it? When the barometric pressure, relative humidity, and temperature reach certain conditions, there wafts a particularly fetid odor through our quiet little village. No dirty diaper, no dog poop, no waste disposal facility can match the stench that hangs like soiled yellow underpants above the rooftops. Call ahead for your appointment and make sure to schedule your visit on Wednesdays. Free samples are available from noon until three.
