The Wisdom of Pigs




Pigs are fourth on the list of intelligent animals, after chimps, dolphins and elephants.

Separated at Birth?
A cat will look down to a man. A dog will look up to a man. But a pig will look you straight in the eye and see his equal.
Winston Churchill



Great Expectations
A pig has its own nature; no one can take that away from him, it cannot be changed, why blame the poor thing?

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.
Robert Heinlein

I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig, you get dirty; and besides, the pig likes it.





The Food Chain
Good to eat, and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm.
Ambrose Bierce

The difference between involvement and commitment is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was involved - the pig was committed.





Animal Farm
No question now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
George Orwell




Superpig
A guy visits his friend, Farmer Bill, and they walk out to see the livestock. "Look at that pig over there," says the guy. "He's got a wooden leg! How come?"

"Well, lemme tell ya about this pig," says Farmer Bill. "Remember last month, how I got stuck when the tractor fell over in a rut? Well, that durned pig came over and rooted me out!"

"Wow!" says the guy. "So how come he's got a wooden leg?"

"Well, lemme tell ya. Remember last week when we had that garage fire? Happened at night. Whole house woulda burned down, except that durned pig came around and banged his snout on the bedroom window and woke me up."

"Wow!" says the guy. "But how come he's got a wooden leg?"

"Well, heck! A pig like that ya cain't eat all at once!"
