Actor and vintner Sam Neill posted Twitter-thanks on Friday, to the Australian Antarctic Division, which appeared to have hosted him and his pet pigs on the ice –there was a pic to prove it. Sadly, the Antarctic experts quickly put the story in the deep freeze. “Rest assured Mr Neill did NOT take pigs to Antarctica. For reasons best known to himself, Mr Neill takes toy pigs around the world, photographing them in various locations for entertainment. These pigs broke no rules… although they did appear to enjoy their time on the ice!” they tweeted. And CMM was so looking forward to questions in Senate estimates.
