By the company he chooses,"
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
- poem

Slowly but not quietly...

Strange. Why did not the pig live happily-ever-after in the nice new pigsty with him and all the intellectual pig posters posting intellectual posts back and forth and generally considering the mutual and inestimable worth of theirselves?
Seems like paradise to me.

So why did these special pigs bother to return to the gutter and kick the drunk pig lying there? Like I said - strange.

Actually this thread reminds me of the movie Emma (Gwyneth Paltrow starred), in which Miss Bates was always yelling single words or brief phrases at her mother because the latter was deaf. At one point she was going on about a wonderful piece of pork sent them by some better-off family, forget who, and she turned to her mother and cried, "PORK, MOTHER!"

PORK! is almost as good as "goo!" (oog spelled backwards)

Then there's the town in Southern California known as Moorpark. Spell it backwards, and you've got the gist of this thread.
