BALAYAN, PHILIPPINES: A roasted pig straddles a motorcycle during a town fiesta in Balayan, south of the Philippine capital Manila, 24 June 2007. Hundreds of succulent pigs decked in colorful costumes were paraded through Balayan to mark its colourful fiesta that honors the patron saint, John the Baptist. The eccentric event serves as a purifying and religious right in this mostly Catholic town. AFP PHOTO/Jay DIRECTO (Photo credit should read JAY DIRECTO/AFP/Getty Images)
