A guy is driving through the countryside and suddenly develops car trouble.

The highway is rather deserted, and having no other choice, he pulls his car over. Fortunately, he spies a farmhouse a little ways up and walks there in hope of using a phone to call for help.

At the house, a farmer answers the door, and hearing the man's plight, welcomes him in to use the phone.

While the man is on the phone calling a towing service, he notices something odd in the farmer's backyard: a pig with a wooden leg. Waiting for the tow truck, the two strike up a conversation.

The man can't help his curiosity and asks the farmer, "Was that a pig with a wooden leg I saw in your yard?"

"Sure was," the farmer replies.

The man says, "I have to know, why does the pig have a wooden leg?"

"Well, that's a very special pig," the farmer says. "One day, I tripped and sprained my ankle near the highway. That pig
pulled me from harm's way and went to the house, got my wife, and let her know I was in trouble."

"Wow," the man said. "I don't know of many dogs that could do that. That is a special pig. But, please tell me, why does the pig have a wooden leg?!"

"Well, as I was saying," the farmer replied, "that's a very special pig. One day me and the Mrs. were asleep in bed when
the house caught on fire. That pig ran upstairs, jumped on the bed, woke the both of us up, and sure as I'm talking to you
today, saved our lives."

"I understand that pig is very special," the man says, getting a little frustrated, "But, please tell me. Why does the pig have a wooden leg!?"

"Well," the farmer replies, "a pig as special as that, you wouldn't want to eat him all at once now, would you?"
