“So, a cow, chicken, and a pig walk into a bar, right. They sit at the bar next to each other in a row. The bartender comes up and serves them, and as he does, he asks each about themselves.”
“The cow, he asks, ‘so whadya do for a living?’”
“‘I make milk.’”
“The chicken, same question.”
“‘I lay eggs.’”
“As he turns to the pig, the pig loosens his collar and sighs loudly in anticipation of the question that goes unspoken.”
“‘Let’s just say, I bring home the bacon.’”
Smiling from ear to ear, Dad turned to the room and awaited the thunderous applause. His one bedroom held its tongue, still and empty.
