Guadalupe School principal Ernie Nix holds two fingers up after the second time he kissed a pig named "Babe" on Friday. The pig is held by Alex Stromberg from This is the Place Heritage Park. Nix kissed the pig because his students read more than 42,000 pages in the past three weeks and raised more than $8,000 for a playground at their new school, which will open this fall. The students' funds also drew a $5,000 matching donation.
