Have you ever heard of the expression, “I ate like a pig!”?
 
Well, I’ve got a little something to tell you, child.
 
I’m a pig, and I’ve never eaten the way you humans presume is pig-like.
 
We, pigs, we’re naturally fat. We’re not meant to be thin.
 
It’s otherwise for humans, because our bodies function differently.
 
You humans should stand tall, lean and strong.
 
But one day, while I was playing with other pigs my size around the pig pen, I saw this man.
 
He was crammed in his small car, and his eyes were bulging from his face.
 
He was eating foods of all sorts, stuffing his face second after second.
 
Eating and eating and eating.
 
First it was the fries, then it was the burger.
 
And then came out the chicken wings, and next was the milkshake.
 
Cupcakes and muffins and breads of all sorts.
 
Poptarts and Twizzlers, and it just would not stop.
 
Beads of sweat were rolling down his face, his forehead glistening and his tired eyes swelling.
 
Man, it was not a pretty site.
 
Now, child, let me tell you this: Pigs do not eat like that.
 
Humans do.
 
So now, whenever we pigs happen to, what you guys call “pig out” we make fun of one another, claiming that, “Oh! I ate like a human today!”
 
And we all laugh.
 
Because it’s the sad truth. You humans are gluttonous and greedy, when you shouldn’t be.
 
Whereas we pigs, we’re not as bad as you think we are.
 
And again, if you really think we’re that bad, just take a look at yourselves.
 
You filthy, greedy, good-for-nothing humans.
