There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Sometimes, you just have to hang up your wig and pig snout. The male Pigskins fans dressed as pig-women known as the Hogettes won’t be dressing up anymore, according to a statement on their website:
After 30 seasons, the Hogettes® are hanging up our pig snouts & dresses. It has been an honor being a part of the greatest 12th Man fans in the NFL. We will forever be Redskins’ fans and cheer for our beloved team. It is a new era and we will continue to support RG3 and his teammates. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!! We will also continue to help (incognito) raise money for Children’s Charities. Mikey T. Boss Hogette
“After 30 seasons, I think that’s enough of guys in pig snouts and dresses,” founder Michael Torbert tells the Post.
There you have it from, the Boss Hogette herself. And what a run—-or waddle—-it has been. The Hogettes have reportedly raised $100 million for charity since donning drag, and grappled with allegedly fake Hogette rivals.
