A Pig in a Wig – A Poem by Tyler

 

There once was a pig, who wore a pink wig.

Don’t you think, a pink wig on a pig would stink?

Pigs should dig, not wear wigs!

Fun Facts About Pigs

Did you know?

  • Pigs are quite fast. They can run up to 11 miles-per-hour.
  • The old saying, “I’m sweating like a pig” is wrong. Pigs have hardly any sweat glands. To cool down, they wallow in mud.
  • Pigs squeal at 115 decibels. That’s 3 decibels higher than the sound of a supersonic airliner.
  • Pigs are extremely intelligent. They can even learn how to walk on a leash, do tricks, and use a litter box!
  • Pigs have 15,000 taste buds. We only have about 9,000. Maybe that’s why they also like to eat slowly and savor their food.
