Humor: Giving While We Are Alive
I’m sure you’ve heard the old story of the conversation between a pig and a cow. The pig is complaining to the cow that nobody ever has a kind word for him. “Look at the way I give of myself,” he says.
“I produce bacon, ham, and pork chops. The bristles of my skin are used for brushes, my hide for luggage. Why, some people even pickle my feet and consider them a delicacy. Why is it then that everyone speaks more kindly of you, the cow, than of me?”
To which the cow replied, “My friend, perhaps it is that I give of myself while I am still alive.”
