Buzzfeed weighs in with the biggest story of the day (not even joking). Katie Notopoulos has uncovered the identity of Piggy Poop Balls, internet porkmeme and Deadspin mascot and hall-of-fame nominee. Spoiler alert: he's a pig with giant balls and he pooped on his giant balls.

Photographer Jeff Reardon (not that one—we think) explains the iconic shot:

I was at The Minnesota State Fair.... we were in the pig barn and I had noticed this guy was very clean for a pig (probably had just been washed for competition?) and had his butt facing us with gigantic balls.

My friends and I had just noticed him and were all looking at his gargantuan balls for no more than 3 seconds when all of a sudden he poops out this huge turd. It fell out his ass, onto his balls and sat on top of them for about 30 seconds before slowly sliding off. I think he made it fall off by taking a couple steps.

Buzzfeed also gets a veterinarian on the record to assure the world that, surprisingly, Mr. Poop Balls was absolutely healthy. A little lean, perhaps, but that giant sack is normal for a breeding pig.

Reardon also provided a second, never-before-seen shot of Piggy Poop Balls' giant pig balls, post-poop. But we'll always remember him as we first met him—with poop on his balls.
