Saturday’s smiles

An agricultural salesman is visiting a farm with a view to flogging a new type of combine harvester.

“No, sorry son,” says the farmer, “my pig takes care of all the harvesting – I have no need for your fancy gizmo.”

“Could save you money in the long-term” tries the salesman.

“No, your combine would never match my pig’s productivity – you should see him go – swishing away with that scythe.” The salesman is intrigued about this pig and asks to see the animal.

The farmer leads the salesman to an enclosure. Standing within – tall and proud – is the most magnificent pig the salesman has ever seen. But the pig has a wooden leg.

“That is a very impressive pig, but why’s he got a wooden leg?” asks the salesman.

“This pig is more than ‘impressive’ – I’m sure he’s unique! Do you know he can also drive the tractor!?”

“Really? But why’s he got a wooden leg?” “He drives our children to school and back!! – even helps them with their homework!!”

“I’m impressed” admits the salesman, “but why the wooden leg?”

“This pig is also a leading authority on organic farming; thanks to him we’ve managed to branch out, and now our revenue is higher than that of any other farm in this county!! ”

Yeah, yeah!! You’ve got one hell of a pig – I can see that by just looking at him – but why does it have a wooden leg!?” the salesman asks again.

“Did I mention the publishing deals? This pig’s just written a best seller and signed up the movie rights. He’s making us a fortune.”

“Amazing, truly amazing – but why ‘s he got a wooden leg?

The farmer looks admiringly at his pig and then turns to the salesman: “If you had a pig like this would you eat him all at one go?”
