Man claims he needs an assault weapon to protect his children from '30-50 feral hogs'

DON’T YOU hate it when your kids are playing in the yard and are suddenly set upon by 30 – 50 feral hogs?

We can’t say this has ever happened to us but it seems to be a serious problem in certain parts of rural America.

William McNabb replied to a tweet which called for gun control asking how he could protect his children from the “30-50 feral hogs” which run into the yard within minutes of them beginning to play, without the use of an assault weapon.

While this may happen, the utter insanity of the sentence provoked internet users to react in the only way they know how.

Within 3-5 minutes, memes, jokes and even poems relating to the feral hogs were flooding the Twitterverse, resulting in one of 2019’s weirdest and most hilarious internet trends.

30-50 feral hogs seems set to go down in meme history, and as usually happens with things like this, will probably get a lot more popular and downright weird before the trend abates.

At least it's making people happy. For about 3-5 minutes. Until 30-50 feral hogs run into their yard.
