Friday Funnies: Hamming it up with a three-legged pig

Font Size:

A man is leaning on a farm gate, watching the farmer round up some sheep when he realises the farmer isn’t using a sheepdog, but a pig. What’s more, the pig, expertly manoeuvring the sheep into a pen, has only three legs.

“Excuse me,” says the man to the farmer, “but why has that pig only got three legs?”

“Let me tell you a bit about that pig,” says the farmer.

“That pig not only herds my sheep, he also crows in the morning, milks the cows morning and night, and collects the eggs from the hens. And that’s not all,” he continued. “That pig can count! He counts so well that he does all the farm accounts and fills in my tax forms.”

“What an amazing pig,” says the man.

“I’m not finished,” says the farmer.

“Two years ago, my farmhouse caught fire and the pig called the fire brigade and then fetched water from the river to douse the flames. He then fought his way through the smoke to where my wife and children lay unconscious and dragged them from the burning house.”

“Wow!” says the man, “that really is an incredible pig. But I still don’t understand why he only has three legs.”

“Ah, well,” says the farmer, “when you have a pig that is that special, you don’t eat him all at once.”


A news flash on the radio issued a warning: “There’s a car on the M25 driving the wrong way.” A grandson realised his grandmother was driving on the M25 so he phoned her to warn her.”

“Nan, be very careful. I’ve heard there’s a car driving the wrong way on the M25.”

She replied: “I know, there’s hundreds of them!”


Q: What did the grape say when it was stepped on?

A: Nothing, it just let out a little wine.


A boy asks his father, “Dad, are bugs good to eat?”

“That’s disgusting. Don’t talk about things like that over dinner,” the dad replies.

After dinner, the father asks, “Now, son, what did you want to ask me?”

“Oh, nothing,” the boy says. “There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”

    The other jokes are good but there’s nothing funny about eating pigs.

      g.v, typical post, tell me why you need to put in such a deliberate post just to show the world how great you are to be a vegan, after all you are the one killing and eating the greens which are there for keeping our animals alive

    My point is that we need to question commonly heard things like this that we have been indoctrinated for years to believe is OK. The earth is now at a critical point where people must realise that growing animals to eat is not sustainable. Richard Branson has now invested heavily in growing non-animal meat and removed meat, palm oil etc from Virgin menus for this stated reason. The “killing the greens” for the animals comment doesn’t make sense, sorry. There are enormous choices of plant based foods, not just greens and animals eating greens and being finished off for months with grains in feedlots is a very inefficient way to feed billions of people when we could eat grains direct that require far less water and clearing of wildlife habitat.

    That vegetable joker has no sense of humor – maybe a good pork chop would give him a laugh.

    I think that the pig joke is revolting.
