Farmers’ Market has pig problem

Published 1:14 am Thursday, October 3, 2013

I’ve been makin’ my way down to the Farmers’ Market in Ironton the past four Saturdays to git some good bargains and to keep tabs on my own personal soap opera.

That’s right.

See, there are these two farms who keep goin’ back and forth about a problems they is having with their pigs. Here’s how it went.

The two farmers each bought a pig, but the first farmer asked the other farmer, “We share the same farm. How are we going to tell our pigs apart?

The second farmer said, “Well, how bout I cut the ear off my pig and then we can tell them apart?”

“Hey, that is a very good idea. Go ahead and do it,” said the second farmer.

It seemed like the situation was good until the next week. The second farmer was all upset and said to the first farmer, “You’re crazy pig chewed the ear off my pig. How are we going to tell them apart now?”

“Well,” thought the first farmer, “how about I cut the other ear off my pig and then we can tell them apart?”

“That makes sense. Good idea. I’m all for it,” said the second farmer.

Welp, sure enough, they came back the next week and the second farmer was upset once again.

“You’re crazy pig chewed the other ear off my pig. Now neither pig has any ears and we can’t tell them apart,” said the second farmer.

“Hmmm,” thought the first farmer again. “I know. I’ll cut the tail off my pig and then we can tell them apart.”

“Hey, that’s a real good idea. I’m all for it,” said the second farmer.

Well, you guessed it. Last week the second farmer came to the market frantic.

“You’re pig ate the tail off my pig. Now there’s not way to tell them apart,” said the second farmer.

The first farmer shook his head in disgust, then smiled.

“How about this. Why don’t I just take the black pig and you take the white one,” said the first farmer.

Maybe we should just give them both to Bob Evans.
