A farmer had a three legged pig and his neighbor asked him why the pig had only three legs.
“Well, I’ll tell you” the farmer replied.
“One day I was plowing my field and the tractor turned over and pinned me underneath. That pig ran for help. He saved my life.”
“Oh, that’s how he lost his leg?” the neighbor drawled.
“No. One night my wife and I were sound asleep and the house caught on fire. That pig woke us up. He saved our lives!”
“So that’s how he lost his leg”, stated the neighbor.
“No, that wasn’t it” the farmer affirmed.
Exasperated, the neighbor demanded
“Then how did he lose his leg?”
The farmer replied, “When you have a pig that good, you won’t eat it all at once!”
