We'll also never know just how much of an overestimate that 35% is.
For what it's worth, there is a twenty-year-old "Psychology of
Interest Group" which has embraced the "pig" mascot ... see
(they have a very cool little piggie favicon). It seems to me that if
experts in psychology are happy to embrace such a symbol, then we who
experts only in programming probably ought at least to let it slide.
Just my opinion,
