Why you shouldn't scold someone a pig

Firstly, it’s my Chinese zodiac. Ah… how accurate; “models of sincerity, purity, tolerance, and honor”.

Secondly, the pig is an animal that has taken centre stage in stories and movies. Ever heard of the clever pig who built a brick house in Three Little Pigs? Or have you watched the smart pig in

Smart pig #2

Babe, Pig in the City? Whoever has heard of a stupid pig in popular culture?

Thirdly, truffles, which cannot be deliberately planted, are dug up by pigs. The best of these precious delicacies are worth up to US$1,500 for a miserly pound.

4. You say pigs are dirty and fat? Contrary to belief, they are extremely clean and only wallow in mud because they cannot sweat and cleverly use the mud to cool themselves down.

5. Pet pigs have been known to be fiercely loyal to their owners. If you watch Animal Planet, NGC or Discovery Channel, you might have come across incidences of potbellied pigs foiling burglary attempts. In one case, two burglars tried to rob an old woman who had just pulled into her garage. Enraged by what it saw, her pet pig moved in and starting gnawing at one man’s leg and refused to let go. Fearing for the man’s life, the kind old lady had to call her pig off the man. So no money gained but quite a bit of blood lost.

So the next time someone “scolds” you a pig, say thank you and show this:

Little Mr. Fuck You

Now, that's a real vulgarity.

With your mum's culinary skills, I like eating pork too!

Pigs are perhaps the most under-appreciated domestic animal. And they're delicious. :p

Try convincing those who have pre-existing religious biases though. Bah.
