Cambridge's 'Pink Floyd' Pub 'Flying Pig' Saved from Demolition in the Year of the Pig?

I got up this morning wearing my 'Dark Side of the Moon' t-shirt, which I had slept in through the night, to see
a news story on the BBC news site about a pub linked to the band being saved from demolition in the Year of the Pig.
And in the Year of the Pig, too?
Anna Campbell should check out 'Zuckerman's Flying Pig' if she likes 'Dark Side of the Rainbow' so much.
The pub owners should put on a screening of David Plate's fusion of Pink Floyd's album 'Animals' with the animated movie version of 'Charlotte's Web' called 'Zuckerman's Flying Pig' in celebration of the coincidence:-)
One For the Year of the Pig?
Or maybe a Christmas screening of the movie that is 24 years old this year and which came out in 1995, which was the Year of the Pig also, 'Babe':-) 
Or maybe a screening of 'Hogswatch', which aired on TV in the
Year of the Pig 2007, 12 years ago.
All good omens for the coming Year of the Rat, 2020, I'm sure;-)
Fiction Prediction Podcast: Neil Gaiman on 'Good Omens'
Aired in the Year of the Pig?-)
Mind blown yet ... or is it just mine?-)
That's all folks?
Let's hope that's not all, as we move into 2020, the Year of the Rat.
I think I need a drink at the 'Flying Pig' ... pronto.
