Salesman stops by a farm and as he's talking to the farmer he notices a 3-legged pig hobbling about.
"Well, you don't see a 3-legged pig every day," muses the salesman.
"That there pig saved my life," replies the farmer. "I was working in the barn one night when a sharp wind caught my overalls and pulled me and my ladder down. Knocked me out cold and knocked my lantern over on the ground. The hay quickly caught fire, and the wind got it going real good."
As the farmer paused to spit, the salesman eagerly asked, "What happened then?"
"Well," the farmer continued, "that there pig grabbed my collar in his mouth and dragged me out of the barn and away from the fire. Saved my life for sure. Lost the entire barn."
"That's amazing!" exclaimed the salesman. "Is that how he lost his leg?"
"Nah," answered the farmer dryly, adding, "But you see, a pig that special, you just don't eat him all at once....."
