Wild hogs invade town.

Plot Edit


The Dean spots a hog.

The history professors get suggestion boxes, and Steve tampers with Frank's. Seeing Flip Flop take notice of this, Steve asks him to keep this secret, but Flip Flop eyes the box in a malicious manner. Meanwhile, while guiding a foreign exchange student around campus, the Dean notices a hog nearby and grows fearful, then asks that Baby Cakes help the student settle into campus before darting away. Later at Town Bar, the history staff sans Frank gather to read their suggestions; most of them are dissatisfied with what they read due to students abusing this feature. Frank enters, donning flamboyant apparel; he notes that he takes seriously any advice given him.

As the Dean notices more hogs around campus, Frank receives "advice" he's fat. A lawn inspector tells the Dean that the campus is being infested by brown hogs, and the Dean tells about a previous hog infestation—when he was a kid, he fell into a well where hogs lived. As they ran by, he became traumatized, and this feeling has remained with him ever since. Later, after a failed attempt to get the new student—nicknamed Aladdin by Baby Cakes—into a fraternity, Baby Cakes intends on building their own fraternity house on campus, completely oblivious to the current hog outbreak.


Frank becomes anorexic.

On entering Town Bar, Steve notices his flamboyant brother is now anorexic and is drawing attention from a crowd. As Frank leaves for a self-purge, Flip Flop—while embracing his new girlfriend, Rhondonna—meets with Steve, pointing out Frank's gullibility. Steve orders Flip Flop to stop the act, but Flip Flop rejects the command and exits alongside Rhondonna.

On campus, the Dean gathers Pony, Matt, Sammy and Falgot to combat the hogs, and Baby Cakes prepares his and Aladdin's fraternity house. The following day, the foursome on hog patrol gather the hogs and capture them in a pen. Sammy suggests waiting for "magic hour," then killing the "queen hog," thinking the entire tribe of hogs will die, only to be rejected by Falgot. Pony, who's in charge of the group, commands them to seal off the cafeteria, but by the time they arrive, the hogs are causing rampant chaos. Sammy gets injured, and the others open fire on the hogs. Matt leads more hogs into the building, and Pony kills them all with fire and cooking oil.


The herd of hogs continues growing.

The Smiths go shopping at Food 4 Thought—Frank slimmer than ever before—but hogs cause chaos there as well. Hog patrol kills those hogs as well, but the now-sextet find the need to find higher ground when the hogs barricade the entry. As the hogs multiply, the combatants climb atop the store shelves and through the ceiling. By the time the six warriors reach the roof, the herd is gigantic. The building starts collapsing when the hogs eat through the walls, and Pony instructs the crew to zip-line to Baby Cakes' fraternity house. Before such is executed, frightened cries are heard—they're coming from Flip Flop and Rhondonna. Falgot fires a grappling hook and rope to the couple's whereabouts and, alongside Sammy, zip-lines there. The other four follow suit but fall off the rope when Food 4 Thought collapses.

On the ground, Pony and Matt open fire on the hogs, Pony commanding the others to help get her, Matt and the Smiths back to higher ground. Using the rope and grappling hook, Flip Flop gets the rest of hog patrol to where his girlfriend, Falgot and Sammy are. The octet then zip-line to Baby Cakes' fraternity house, Pony demanding entry. The hogs climb one over another, and they capture Rhondonna and eat her alive. When threatened by Pony, Baby Cakes grants entry to the now-seven people.

When asked for ideas, Sammy restates her "queen hog" theory. The queen lies deep in the den, which is guarded by three "guarding hogs." As stated before, the death of the queen hog during "magic hour" yields the death of the entire hog herd. Falgot rejects the idea once more, but Pony insists they abide by it and confiscates Frank's food, stating his skinny figure is necessary for Sammy's plan. Pony completes the plan of attack—she and Frank seek the queen hog while the other seven keep the guards distracted.


The combatants carry out Sammy's idea.

The nonet lower themselves from the frat house, clearing a path through the herd to the hog den. While seven of the combatants keep the guards distracted, Pony and Frank make sure there are no hogs near the den. Once the coast is clear, Frank crawls through the tunnels of the den, being just skinny enough to navigate them. Inside the heart of the den, Frank plants a bomb next to the queen, and when the bomb explodes, it kills the queen and consequently all other hogs.

Walking home, Steve warns Flip Flop that, as revenge for his "suggestions," he had waste management fill the latter's house with debris. Entering Flip Flop's house, the prof.-student duo discover the debris attracted hogs, which killed Flip Flop's parents. The Dean, having hidden out back during the invasion, strolls through campus when he hears sucking noises. He tracks down the sound and sees it is Frank and a new pack of hogs drinking a new queen's milk. The babies attack the Dean as an apathetic Frank looks on.
