A man was driving down the road in the country. He looked over
and saw a baby pig in the field. He stopped and picked up the
pig. He was driving around town with the pig in the car and a cop

The driver agrees he will take the pig to the zoo.

Buddha - If you ask this question, you deny your own pig-nature.
Howard Cosell - It may very well have been one of the most
