Back in the good old days, when a lot of pipes were not buried and you needed cleaning, you sent through a unit with some radical cleaning equipment - maybe balled up barbed wire. As it went along the pipe, you could HEAR the thing scraping along - somebody made the obvious conclusion that there was a pig in the line. Good names stick...

   Why are pigs called pigs?
   I mean why not goat, cow etc...

   Joke apart, there should be some reason to call this thing PIG.    Any inputs ?

   Have a nice day.
