How to use pig in a sentence?

  1. Johanna Rode-Margono:

    Javan warty pigs are of a similar body size to European wild boar but are a bit more slender and have longer heads, males have three pairs of enormous warts on their faces. It is these characteristics that have led to them being affectionately labelled as ‘the world’s ugliest pig’ but, certainly to us and our researchers, they are rather beautiful and impressive.

  2. Cale Yarborough:

    Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.

  3. Huey Newton:

    Most of my young life I was a student. And I know sociologically that words stigmatize people, we felt that the police needed a label, a label other than that fear image that they carried in the community. So we used the pig as the rather low-life animal in order to identify the police. And it worked.

  4. Greg Girard:

    The places that stuck out were the meat factories, there were pig carcasses laying splayed out on the floor ; they'd burn the hair off with a blowtorch, it was all pretty open and of course there were no health laws governing the place.

  5. Ogden Nash, "The Pig":

    The Pig, if I am not mistaken, Supplies us sausage, ham, and Bacon. Let others say his heart is big, I think it stupid of the Pig.
