Finding humour in unlikely places

The Pigs by Paul Ford

"I forgot to tell you--when I was down in Maryland helping my mother after the flood, a woman came by the house and told the story of her three caged pigs. These pigs were nearly carried away during the flood. Lifted up in their cages by the raging torrent, they swam as hard as they could, their snouts barely out of the water, and they survived. Hero pigs! Brave swimming pigs! Pigs rising above obstacles! Unsinkable pigs with seven highly effective habits, getting things done! Give them ribbons, and rub their snouts. 'We're butchering them next week,' said the woman."

Beautiful.

And while Paul says he's "ashamed that Space Moose made me laugh," I'm not. Space Moose was a staple of my undergrad, it's offensive, and it still makes me laugh.
