Famous Pig

As heard on the Good Stuff with Jim Thompson

 

This reporter gets this lead on this story about this really special pig. So he goes to interview the pig's owner for the evening broadcast. He drives to the house, knocks on the door. The man opens the door and invites him inside. The reporter says, "I understand that you've got a very special pig here." The man says, "Special? Hell son, let me tell you some stories about that pig."

"About ten years ago, I found this pig by the roadside. He had dropped off of a pickup truck, and left for dead. So I went and picked him up and nursed him back to health. About two years later the whole family was asleep, and the house and barn caught on fire. The pig busted into the window, woke me up, and told me the house was on fire>" The reporter is stunned. "You mean to tell me that that pig can talk?" "Hell, yes, he can talk," says the farmer. "This pig is helping to perfect the cold fusion process, and he's on the lecture circuit, making $10,000 per speech."
The reporter asks the farmer hastily, "Can we go see this miracle pig now???" The farmer replies, "Sure we can." So they go out into the farmyard, and there, sitting on the fence smoking a cigarette is this pig missing one front leg and one hind leg. The pig says to the reporter, "Hello there. Beautiful weather, isn't it? I haven't seen weather this pretty since I was sailing the Barbados..." The reporter is too stunned to respond. He drags the farmer back into the house, and says, "Dammit, you're right. The pig can talk!!!" The farmer says, "See, I told you." Then the reporter says, "I've just got one question. What happened to his legs?"

The farmer says, "You see, son, a pig that smart, you just CAN'T eat him all at once."
