A man stops at a farmhouse to buy some eggs. From the kitchen, he can see a pig with three legs lying on the living-room sofa being fed bon-bons by the farmer's young son. The visitor asks the farmer about it.

"Him? Well, our lad Tommy fell in the well one day. The pig was the only one who saw him fall. He ran to the well and tried to lower the bucket so he could lift him out, but the kid was too weak to hang on and slipped down again into the water.

So the pig climbed into the well, spread his legs out and inched his way down to rescue him. Just as he got there our kid fell unconscious and went under. The pig stuck his head down, grabbed the kid's shirt, pulled his head above water, and gave him mouth-to-mouth to get him breathing again. Then he clambered back up the shaft, dragging our kid with him, and kept on squealing until I heard him and got the lad inside."

Man: "Wow! Is that how he lost his leg?"

Farmer: "Him? No, he was untouched. No... the thing is, you don't eat a pig like that all at once."
