The Pig Joke
As promised, here is the joke I referred to in my last post. Those of you who read it already know the punch line!
Two apple farmers are on their way to market and meet up on the road.
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?”
Your comment on my comment indeed shows that time is meaningless, that’s my comment.
And I interpreted it to mean, “Sorry, I haven’t got the time to read it now,” as a take-off on “What’s time to a pig” (we have all the time in the world now!)
Wonderful how you made that old joke so snappy and funnier than ever even though we
Knew what was coming. Love the bright illustrations and photo too. We know a few
Households where “What’s time to a pig? “ is said 😄
Thank you for reading and commenting. And for your sweet compliments, very much appreciated!
I say that all the time thanks to Marty. Nice knowing where it came from!
