A man was on a walking holiday in Ireland.
While he was walking through the wonderful Irish countryside one fresh Spring day, he became rather thirsty, so he decided to stop at a little cottage and ask for something to drink.
The lady of the house invited him in, gave him a drink of water, and then, as it was somewhat chilly outside, she served him a bowl of soup by the fire.
While he was eating the soup, the man noticed that there was a wee pig who was running around the kitchen. He kept running up to the visitor and giving him a great deal of attention.
The man commented that he had never seen a pig this friendly before.
The lady of the house replied: “Ah, he’s not that friendly. That’s his bowl you’re using”.
