I recently read one of Yasser Seirawan's "Winning Chess" books ... Can't remember which, but he mentioned "Pigs on the 7th" ...

I know it's referring to Rooks on the 7th Rank, but where'd the "Pigs" bit come from?

Because they just roam along the 7th rank and eat anything on there way - the favourite diet being the pawns.

An alternate expression being "The hogs on the 7th".
