    Lawyers Are Pigs Guy.

    I have seen this guy in pig suit with a sign that says "Lawyer are pigs" in and around the 45th and Guadalupe St. area for about a month. Does anybody know his story? Sorry no pics, I know, I'll get the $#@! out now.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that

    1) this individual is unhinged (to some degree); and
    2) once hired a lawyer; and
    3) things didn't turn out like he planned.

    Just got my picture taken with him this afternoon.

    I celebrate the guy's entire catalog.

    And no, I really couldn't figure out what his beef is -- I think it's essentially that the legal system is "inside baseball" among judges and lawyers. Which is generally true. Of course, baseball is "inside baseball" -- you kinda need to know the rules and stuff if you're gonna play with any degree of success. But so be it. I can understand how folks can be pissed after an encounter with the system.

    And the guy had a good sense of humor, and was quite friendly. And he noted that he's had hundreds of lawyers get their picture taken with him, noting that "I gotta give y'all this -- you've got a good sense of humor."

    The sign says 'some' in smaller print that probably isn't visible when you're driving.

    So he's probably a $#@!ing lawyer, too.

    Every day is Halloween for Austin street protester in a pig costume

    John Kelso, Commentary


    Published: 9:18 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010
    I tried to phone Eric A. Anderson the other day, and his wife, Bettie Carrington, said he wasn't home.
    "He's in a pig suit somewhere," she explained.
    Out on the town in a barnyard animal costume is all in a day's work for frequent street protester Eric Anderson.
    For the past two or three weeks, the jaunty Anderson has been in a pig suit somewhere. He has been standing on the side of various streets in Austin, protesting lawyers while dressed in a pink pig costume that he bought online for $50. So when I saw him at the South First Street bridge, I just had to circle the block to talk to him.
    Anderson, whose current protest sign says "Some Lawyers Are Pigs," has been wearing the pig outfit so much that the hoof-shaped felt feet that accessorize the look needed work.
    "I had to go to the cloth store to get me some more cloth because these are getting worn out, I walk on 'em so much," said Anderson, 64, a retired railroad conductor.
    Anderson won't say what his specific beef with lawyers stems from, although I'm guessing he thinks he was overbilled. "They can sit at their desk for three hours and take a nap, and they can charge you for three hours of billable work, and you cannot prove whether they worked three hours or have taken a nap," he says.
    Anderson hasn't gotten the publicity he deserves in the pantheon of Austin eccentrics. He has been protesting this and that around Austin in various critter and other outfits since the 1990s.
    About 20 years ago, he was a fixture at City Council meetings, dressed as a chicken. He was there so often that he doesn't even remember what he was protesting.
    "I was one of the council regulars. My symbol was a little rubber chicken hanging from a hangman's noose."
    He has also worn a Revolutionary War outfit to council meetings. "I can't wear the revolutionary outfit anymore; I've gained more weight."
    He's got a vampire suit, a pirate suit and a "wicked judge" costume. He even has an alternate outfit for his anti-attorney campaign.
    "I've got a particularly nasty $#@!roach costume," Anderson said. "I was going to stand in front of the courthouse with a sign that says: ‘Warning. This courthouse is infested with lawyers.' It was particularly disgusting."
    Anderson says he's gotten lot of attention this time around with his pig attire, some of it perhaps coming from attorneys. "There are some people who are driving real nice cars and wearing real nice suits who are shooting me the finger."
    On his bumper stickers and sign that say "Some Lawyers Are Pigs," he has written "Some" in small letters — to keep from getting sued.
    "Fat chance of me getting a lawyer to represent me now," he said.
    Anderson says he's invested "at least a couple of thousand" dollars in his anti-lawyer project on bumper stickers, the pig outfit and the rubber pig stuck on top of the sign. He bought the rubber pig at a party supply shop on Brodie Lane. "I swooped in there after Halloween."
    He's given away more than 1,000 bumper stickers, he says. The response, he says, has been startling.
    He says one man broke down while telling him his problems dealing with attorneys. "Great tears welled up in his eyes," Anderson recalled. "He was embarrassed. He buried his face in his hands and just sobbed. The only man he could stop and tell his story to was a man in a pig suit." I'd sob too if my confidant was made up like Porky.
    Anderson will do just about anything for attention except go naked. He says he once took his pet pig, Herald, in a cage to a spot outside the federal courthouse here to protest bankers at a bank scandal trial.
    "I had him in a little cage; I put a sign on it that said: ‘Banker's jail. Put the piggies in the pokie,' " Anderson said. "And I had a little plastic ball and chain on his foot."
    Anderson says the administrative assistant of the federal judge presiding over the trial came out to talk to him to see what his problem was.
    "Oh, she was a fox, too," he recalled. But she wasn't wearing a costume.

    I bet Mrs. Mark Mangino wishes she had a quarter for every time she's said that same line.

    Probably why. I go running by 45th and Guadalupe most days and haven't seen him, but I don't drive around Austin too much except on the weekends.

    As soon as I saw this guy about 1 to 1.5 months ago @ W.C. & 290, I called Jack Straw & told him about it. I wasn't able to get a pic, however, as the traffic was moving too rapidly & I didn't have time to turn around & go back.

    Kelso doesn't tell us what his beef is with the legal community, however. ??
