What I learned today



I said that I was going to learn something every day. So here's what I learned today.

It takes forty pigs to make four thousand sausages.

Isn't it amazing what you can teach them?

Hi Lucy, it takes eighty people to train the pigs 'n what the hell are ya gonna do with four thousand sausages ?
Have you changed your email from AOL as listed in your profile ? I had an email bounce back that I sent you, it was only a comment, nuthin' important.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

No, 3D, didn't go there yet. I was babysitting your MIL.

Peter! I wondered what was happening to my mail! Honestly. I haven't had mail in days. Huh!

Monique said...

Huh, see, I learned something here. I didn't know pigs could make sausages. Your blog is so edu-ma-cational. But who's going to eat all those sausages?

Sylvie said...

Yeah, but can they make bratwurst?

Libby said...

a better question is....how many different kinds of animals are there in one cheap brand hot dog?? hmmmmm??

I needed that laugh!

Jamie Dawn said...

That cartoon really gave me a good laugh.
That pig does look mighty smug doesn't he?
Pork chops sound good to me! Can I borrow that battle axe of yours?

This cartoon, and your commentary gave me a good laugh for the evening!

Thanks for brightening up the evening, TLP.

So one pig makes 100 sausages huh. Neato.

Doug said...

Great punchline, Ms. Pez.

A very important piece of information...Poor Poor Piggies...!

I love the look on this pigs face...He is really cute!

Sponge Girl said...

Damn pretentious pigs.

"Ooh, look at me, I can make sausages, ooh, I've got opposable thumbs, oooh, my uncle Merv is a football..."

Lousy, spoilt rotten pigs.
Harrumph.

They should build Gosadans for pigs like they do for Hindu cows...

mmm...bacon :)

Bela said...

LOL!

I'd rather not think about it, though. :-(

sherle said...

I'm gittin' my education from Tan Lucy Pez!!! Keep 'em coming lady. ;-)

Minka said...

And we humans think we all are so f-different. Even pigs live in different stables, eating different food and follow differetn paths.
40 pigs for 4.000 sausages? Germany must have many pigs, we love sausages.

Lucy said...

OK..i'm learning a lot here. Time to start thinking about my diploma from TLP University...or the Pez University. Ha ha ha. You could be famous..having a university named after you and all.

Klondike Kate said...

LOL! That was great! I must have been a very tired blond 'cause when I read this post last night I didn't get it at all. Thanks for the morning laugh!

Mike said...

I know. I'm learning too. Amazing.

TLP is my private tutor. :)

Keith said...

I have tried to email you at your usual aol address, but the mail comes back as undeliverable! Have you paid the bill?

That's something ELSE you've learned today, sweetheart.

Keith said...

mike - If TLP is your private tutor, then you'll never graduate!

*dodging book aimed at head*

I think the sadder part of all of this is that I am actually learning something. You can't really underestimate the power of knowing the history behind your breakfast food.

I hate sausage. And try to go with as little meat as possible in my diet... because I've learned how meats are processed and it just ain't pretty. If I have to choose, I go with slabs of meat over anything that's ground up, cuz you just don't know what's in there... :P

lime said...

the cartoon is a stitch!!! and 4K sausages is more than i'd ever eat in a lifetime!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

How much sausage could a woodchuck upchuck if a woodchuck could upchuck....?

Fred said...

Oh boy, something I can tell my students that I knew. They'll be so impressed. :)

LBseahag said...
