Pig With A Wooden Leg
A man was walking in the country when he saw a pig with a wooden leg sitting outside a barn. As he was wondering what happened to the pig, the pig’s owner came along. The man asked the farmer how the pig came to have a wooden leg.
The farmer said, “Let me tell you, that is some pig! Our house caught fire last April while me and the missus was sleeping and that pig broke through the door and he woke us up and he dragged my kids to safety!”
“Is that how he lost his leg?” the man asked.
“No,” replied the farmer. “But a month ago, I almost drowned in the pond over yonder and that pig swam through the icy water to pull me to shore!”
“So that’s how he lost his leg,” the man asked.
“Oh, no. Just a week ago, my wife’s car slid off the road onto the train tracks. That pig seen it and jumped through the car window and helped her out just as a freight train came through!” the farmer said.
“So THAT’S how he lost his leg!” the man said.
“No, sir,” replied the farmer.
“Then HOW did he lose it?” the man begged.
“Well, sir,” the farmer replied, “when you got a pig that terrific, you don’t want to eat it all at once!”
You’re making me hungry…
How can he eat such a heroic pig? He should become a vegetarian when facing such heroism in front of him.
What a ham.
The other white meat.
Now I’m hungry for a hero sandwich.
