In the foreground, appearing to gaze up at the viewer with an ingratiating expression, is a second pig bank that is less anthropomorphized than the first. Rising from its head is a clear Plexiglas thought bubble that reads “More Please.” The pig stands in front of the open gate of the white fence that surrounds the scene, and it appears he might escape. It is standing on a large maple leaf punched out of money bearing an image of Donald Trump’s face. This leaf is attached to a string of money leaves that winds through the fence and leads back to the Bobbsey Twins game, reinforcing the playful nature of the piece.
