Punch,  49 (1865), 131.

A Paragraph to Please the Pigs



News-Commentary, Drollery


Animal Husbandry, Disease, Medical Treatment, Veterinary Science, Language

    Discusses a letter published in the Daily Express which details a cure for 'distemper amongst pigs'. The wording of the letter, however, inadvertently implies that pig owners, rather than pigs, have been suffering from 'this virulent and fatal disorder' and that the pig owners are themselves pigs.
