The Smart Pig?

A travelling salesman came upon an old farmer sitting on his porch, next to the farmer was a pig with only one leg. The salesman was about to give his sales pitch when his curiosity got the best of him.

“Excuse me sir, but why does your pig only have one leg?” asked the salesman.

“Well sonny, I’ll tell ya. One day I was out plowing the back 40 when my tractor overturned, pinning me underneath. I was losing blood and thought I would die when that pig came running. He dug and rooted around with his nose till he got me out and he dragged me back to the house. Saved my life that pig did.”

“Wow, that’s really amazing,” said the salesman, “but I still don’t know why the pig only has one leg.”

“Well I’ll tell ya,” said the farmer. “One night me and the wife were asleep at about 3 a.m. when a fire broke out in the kitchen. Well that pig broke down the door, came into our bedroom waking us up and getting us out before the fire could get us, saved our lives that pig did!”

“Well that’s really great but why does the pig only have one leg?”

“Well sonny, when you get a pig that smart, you don’t want to eat him all at once.”

Married Four Times

The local news station was interviewing an 80 year old lady, because she had just gotten married for the fourth time.
The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80 and then about her new husband’s occupation!

“He’s a funeral director,” she answered.

“Interesting,” the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living.

She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her early 20s, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40s, and a preacher when in her 60s, and now in her 80s, a funeral director.

Astonished, the interviewer looked at her and asked, “Why did you marry four men with such diverse careers?”

She smiled and explained, “I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready and four to go.”
