As promised, here is the joke I referred to in my last post. Those of you who read it already know the punch line!
Farmer Brown: That’s a mighty nice load of apples you have there!
Farmer Smith: Thanks! I devised a new way of gathering them.
Farmer Brown: I’d like to hear about that!
Farmer Smith: I take my pig, Porky, and lift him high up to grab an apple. He puts it in his mouth, I lower him, take the apple and place it in the basket. Then, we start again, lift, Porky grabs the apple in his mouth, lower and I put in basket.
Farmer Brown: Isn’t that awfully time-consuming?
Farmer Smith: What’s time to a pig?
In my house, we use the punch line all the time. For example, I might say to my husband during this self-quarantine time: “It’s gonna take me forever to finish this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle!” His response? You guessed it: “What’s time to a pig?”
