It's all how you look at it...

A man from the city was visiting a small farm, and during this visit he saw
a farmer feeding pigs in a most extraordinary manner.  The farmer would lift
a pig up to a nearby apple tree, and the pig would eat the apples off the
tree directly.  The farmer would move the pig from one apple to another
until the pig was satisfied, then he would start again with another pig.

The city man watched this activity for some time with great astonishment.
Finally he could not resist saying to the farmer, "This is the most
inefficient method of feeding pigs that I can imagine.  Just think of the
time that would be saved if you simply shook the apples off the tree and
let the pigs eat them from the ground!"  The farmer looked puzzled and
asked, "What's time to a pig?"


In response to the new Florida "English only" law, which bars expenditure
of public funds for the purpose of extending services in languages other
than English, the Dade County Zoo has ceased printing the Latin names of
animals on the signs in front of cages.
