Bacon burglar: signed pig stolen from Lovey’s BBQ
APIG with Canadian actor Dan Aykroyd’s name on it is missing from a local restaurant. Roger LeBleu of Lovey’s BBQ says someone broke into his Marion Street restaurant early Friday morning. The thief or thieves didn’t get away with much — except for a cute ceramic pig autographed by Aykroyd.
LeBleu admits the ornament only has sentimental value, but he’d like to have it back.
The pig has black sunglasses and a black fedora, and looks a bit like a character from The Blues Brothers, a 1980 movie Aykroyd starred in with the late John Belushi.
LeBleu says he’s really sad to lose the mini porker.
“This we had signed by Dan Aykroyd when he was in town last time promoting his alcohol. We had a wonderful morning that day. Great memories,” LeBleu said.
Aykroyd, 61, rose to fame with his comedic performances on Saturday Night Live and with roles in The Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters movies.
He received an Oscar nomination for his supporting turn as the son in the 1989 movie Driving Miss Daisy.
He is also behind a vodka made in Newfoundland and a winery.
This is not the first time Aykroyd’s name has come in connection with a pig. A biography says he was expelled from St. Patrick’s College in Toronto when he dressed up a pig as the Pope.
