Porgs may not taste like chicken - at least according to the people we talked to - but they sure do talk like them.
Ever since they were revealed, the porgs have taken over Star Wars discourse like a Hutt at an all-you-can eat buffet.

It turns out, this porg in particular was designed to emulate his more famous friend.

What I do know is that before you become completely sick of the tiny creatures you need to watch them sing the Star Wars theme, courtesy of some clever sound effects sampling.

Not I. I for one welcome our new Porg overlords.
