Pig Deal

I have acted like a pig.


I have eaten like a pig.


I have EATEN a pig.


I like Miss Piggy.


I have an all-time favorite movie about a pig.


I have an all-time favorite book about a pig.


I've been to football games where they toss around a pig skin.


I used to be married to a man who behaved like a pig. (Sorry, pigs everywhere, that wasn't fair.)

(Not my actual first husband. This guy looks much nicer, is a snappier dresser, and probably never held a loaded gun on his wife - and that's not even what I divorced him for!)



I have wished we had a store named "Piggly Wiggly" just because it's fun to say.


I have even played, "This little piggy went to market" (but I didn't actually eat the toes).



However, I have never, nor do I now, want anything to do with THIS pig.

  5. LOL! I have been coughing and have a scratchy throat. The husband said I must have that "flying pig flu"!!

    oh, we had a piggly wiggly. Loved to say it too. But sadly, my great grandfather died in the parking lot of the piggly wiggly waiting on my great grandmother. Yes, we are quite country!! I bet we could write a country song with that in it. Pawpaw died at the piggly wiggly....

    I think the flying pig disease is affecting my brain!

  6. You are tooo funny. That was a fun read!
    {though there was that part that had me halted... *sighh* ...wow.... I am SO glad you did NOT make children with that man.
    I think of that saying, "You've come a long way baby."}

    ha... my word veri- "blahs" ...funny, something that's hanging around here. But not swine flu I hope... regular ole cold.
    Thanks for the smile.

  7. Oh my! What would I do without my daily dose of Robynn's wit! I'm (mostly)laughing myself all the way back to bed with my own scratchy throat and now stuffed up head...

  13. Thanks for the chuckle. All except that tiny part in the middle? Oh dear!! We all have (had) our issues, don't we?

  14. Oi vey.......I think you started something Robynn...your going to have to expand on the loaded gun. I had visions of my deceased uncle and what he did to his family....as for the rest....What a HOOT!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a coincidence that my entire family (excluding hubby, he never gets sick) has aches, chills, fever, coughing, etc ... pretty much all those lovely symptoms of swine flu. I have been in bed since the weekend. Can't shake it, whatever it is, we'll never know, because you know how I hate doctors too.

    Thanks for the giggles though ... it's the best medicine!

    p.s. following you on Twitter now too! I feel like a stalker. LOL

  16. You're not going to believe this, Robynn, but our minds work in the same way.

    In about six hours, a Verse and Worse about the same subject will auto-post on my blog. It is an exact encapsulation of your last image here.

    Strange, because I wrote it about 18 hours ago!!

  17. Forgot to say: Sniffles And Smiles told me to come here and read this post.

  18. Funny Robynn! I think you have the swine flu too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Robynn, Bet you're glad I'm not a 'male chauvanist pig'. To you my dear I am just Kermit the frog.
    Nice to talk again.

  20. I was smart this morning and put the coffee down *before* I read this. But with my cold, it's still unwise to *snort*. I found out the hard way.

    But your ex?
    Was he perhaps named *he who shall remain nameless"? Same thing happened with mine... and he was a cop!

    ps. I have a Piggly Wiggly apron that hangs in pride of place on the kitchen door! Love them piggies!

    ReplyDelete
  21. wow - I'm thinking there's definitely a story in there about your ex-husband. Sounds like a character (I'm trying to be nice).

  22. My grandpa collects pigs...but I don't think he wants to collect the swine flu.

  23. A. Loaded. Gun.???!!! Thank heaven you are in a better place now. And, uh, I hope the fella in the overalls has found a new tailor. Regarding the piggy post, I laughed and sighed and enjoyed your wit! I, too, love the movie "Babe". Baa Ram Ewe and all that. And the name Piggly Wiggly is totally fun to say! :-)

  24. I've been to Piggly Wiggly! :D

  25. We used to have a Piggly-Wiggly in Oregon when I was a kid! Are those stores still in business?

    That was such a clever post! I guessed what was coming, but it was still very clever and funny!

    If the loaded gun didn't make you divorce him, what on earth did? My dear friend had the same thing happen to her by her former husband.

I must be feeling better, I'm ready to get a little rowdy.

  32. The gut on your ex-husband's stand-in is precious.

    I've been surfing the web for a good Swine Flu post. Yours is a gem.

    Oh my friggen God. I'm watching Entertainment Tonight and their yakking about the swine flu. My boyfriend's coworker called in sick with the swine today.

    Argh.

  36. Congratulations on POTD, Robynn! I had to 'run the gauntlet' to get here because there was this mad woman pointing her finger at me, shouting her head off! She looked decidedly mad, so I called in the medics (hope you didn't mind!) - you might say she was a Raving Lunatic! I was very frightened but took heart when I saw Miss Piggy who said, "Fear not, Eddie, her bark is much worse than her bite and she has already had her breakfast, Kermit the Frog!"
    Thanks for your very kind comment at my place but don't be late next time I shall severely reprimand you! I shall come like a thief in the night!
    Robynn, you'll love the next two - you and some other buddies are in it! That's all I'm giving away right now. Eddie x
