Mama pig

Blowing her up

A 6 year old city girl went to visit her grandparents on their farm. Grandpa took her out to the barn to see the pigs on her first morning while Grandma made pancakes for breakfast.

Afterwards, the girl came running into the farmhouse: “Grandma, that mama pig out in the barn is so big!” she exclaimed, wide-eyed. “And I know why… There’s a bunch of little pigs out there blowing her up!”

Grandma, who knows when to suppress her opinion in favor of life’s wonders, replied, “Well goodness, darlin’, for a city girl you are pretty clever!”
