It’s a well-known fact that pigs eat people. Which, seems only fair since we eat them too.
It’s also a well-established fact that if you slip and fall in the pig pen, maybe you hit your head, perhaps you’re drunk or stoned – as many farmers are apt to be – and are slow to rise to your feet, pigs will rush you, just onto your back, and start gnawing on your ears and nose.
All this ran through my head today as I was shoveling pig shit out of the sty and nearly tripped. You see, while pigs are in fact a rather clean animal unlike the duck who wallows away most of the day in his own filth, they prefer a cluttered living environ, full of things for their human keeper to ‘accidentally’ stumble over and trip.
Crafty little buggers.
