This guy was very hungry and he went to the pig to ask for bacon. The pig snorted. 'Wait for my piglets to be born, and another one year they should be ready for the table. Now go away.'
So the hungry man went away, hungry, and waiting for the bacon to be ready. The pig had solved his need for bacon, to be delivered in a year's time.
Would the hungry man survived while waiting for the bacon to arrive? Or would he find a subsitute to ease his hunger pang?
Oink, oink, oink.
