Description : Animal Farm Revisited: The Pipeline is a sequel to George Orwell's original Animal Farm. This time, the Pigs are out for complete domination of the farm. They have a vision of building a mighty Pipeline that will funnel every scrap of food from a massive barn to their pen so that, all night and all day, they can feast and revel while the other animals work and starve. All the Pigs have to do is rig an election, spread fear throughout the farm, start an epidemic to kill off the "excess populations" of animals, and work the rest to death. (Hey, it's just that easy.) This "re-boot" of Orwell's classic satire goes to show that times may change, but there will always be "pigs" who believe they deserve more than others, and that they will do anything to get it. It is a dark, if not humorous, look at today's political landscape.
