“If you go downtown to the office of the leading lawyer of the city,” I began, “and ask him why a pig eats so much, he will tell you it is because the pig is so greedy. A country boy has more sense than that. If you ask a country boy that question, he will tell you that a pig eats so much because he is trying to make a hog out of himself.”
At the close of the service a fine-looking gentleman walked down the aisle. “I am a lawyer,” he said. “I would have told anyone one that the reason a little pig eats so much is because he is so greedy. Now, I make my money by giving people information. You have told me so many things tonight that I never knew before that I feel like I owe you ten dollars.” With that he handed me a check. I thanked him and stuck the money down in my old jeans.
