A guy is driving through the countryside and suddenly develops car trouble.
The highway is rather deserted, and having no other choice, he pulls his car
over. Fortunately, he
spies a farmhouse a little ways up and walks there in hope of using a phone to
call for help.
At the house, a farmer answers the door, and hearing the man's plight, welcomes
him in to use the phone. While the man is on the phone calling a towing service,
something odd in the farmer's backyard: a pig with a wooden leg. Waiting for the
tow truck, the two strike up a conversation. The man can't help his curiosity
and asks the
farmer, "Was that a pig with a wooden leg I saw in your yard?"
"Sure was," the farmer replies.
The man says, "I have to know, why does the pig have a wooden leg?" "Well,
that's a very special pig," the farmer says. "One day, I tripped and sprained my
ankle near the
highway. That pig pulled me from harm's way and went to the house, got my wife,
and let her know I was in trouble."
"Wow," the man said. "I don't know of many dogs that could do that. That is a
special pig. But, please tell me, why does the pig have a wooden leg?"
"Well, as I was saying," the farmer replied, "that's a very special pig. One day
me and the wife were asleep in bed when the house caught on fire. That pig ran
on the bed, woke the both of us up, and sure as I'm talking to you today, saved
"I understand that pig is very special," the man says, getting a little
frustrated, "But, please tell me. Why does the pig have a wooden leg?"
"Well," the farmer replies, "a pig as special as that, you wouldn't want to eat
him all at once now, would you?"
