Cast Pearls Before The Swine

by Silvia Hartmann

nd it came to pass that pearls were cast before the swine.

This caused the swine to come rushing forward, to sniff at the pearls and then they got EXTREMELY upset, because they were hungry and hoping for something good to eat, and instead they were getting these inedible pointless hard ball things thrown at them they could do nothing with!

One swine amongst them (a particularly fine swine!) said, "Alright that's it. I've had enough of this. Follow me, fellow swine! Let's seize the day!"

The swine stormed the fence of the enclosure which kept them inside, always hungry, always dirty, and at the mercy of whoever came along to do the casting.

Under the onslaught of the many swine, the fence had no choice but to surrender, and it fell, and all the swine escaped and found green and pleasant lands, stuffed full with roots, and berries, and even truffles to snozzle up - tas-ty!

The swine lived happily ever after; and what became of the ill-advised pearl tossers, history does not record.
