One day a Shepard found a fat Pig in the meadow where he kept his Sheep.
He quickly captured the Pig, which squealed, with the top of his voice the moment the Shepard caught him.
You would have thought the Pig was in great pain, since he was squealing so loudly.
However, despite the Pig's effort, the Sheperd headed to the butcher in the market with his prize.
The Sheep were shocked at the Pig's behavior. They followed the farmer to the gate.
"What makes you squeal like that?" asked one of the Sheep.
"The Shepherd often catches and carries off one of us.
We would feel very much ashamed to make such a terrible fuss about it like you do."
"That is very well." replied the Pig, with a squeal and kicking very hard.
"When he catches you, he is only after your wool. When he catches me, he is after my bacon!"
Lesson: It is easy to be brave when there is no danger.
