Zappa with stuffed pig.

Pigs appear regularly in Zappa's work.

"Zappa was lying in bed, eating breakfast and playing with his three-month-old baby. He lives with his wife, Gail, and the baby, in a long basement apartment in the West Village. The apartment has a garden and its walls are papered with posters and music sheets and clippings from magazines; there is a full-length poster of Frank in the hall and a rocking chair in the living room with a crocheted cover that says "Why, what pigs?" (Zappa and the Mothers: Ugly Can Be Beautiful)
