    Pig sure has one small, small brain. Maybe the size of a mustard seed… then again, maybe no brain at all

    The term “flea market” comes from the idea that people sell their old clothes there. Along with the old fleas in the clothes. So pig isn’t far wrong.

    “Please say “black market” around Pig or we’ll all be in trouble.” I think you meant to say, “Please DON’T say “black market” around Pig or we’ll all be in trouble.”

    Pug doesn’t go out much, does he? Many have mentioned the black market, but what about the mini market? What does he think it’s sold there?

    I like to go to yard sales and say “I’d like a yard of this, and a couple of yards of that”.

    I like garage sales, the prices are great but the moving costs are vicious!

    Come on Goat, it could be a market on Flower Street, or the lot that it’s held on could be owned by someone with the last name Flower.

    I was waiting for a punchline like “So how many types of flour are there in a flour market?”

    Car-boot sales – what about the rest of the car? Or do they sell wheel-clamps?

    I used to shop at World Market, but I could never find an appropriate world within my price range.

    Right down there with the question, if germ fighters fight germs and crime fighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters fight?

    Give Pig a break, folks! He is thinking! He is using his brain as a Vulcan would, coming to a severely logical conclusion, though it happens to be wrong.

    Pig needs our help, folks, not put-downs!

    Reminds me of a previous “Pearls” where Pig asks Pigita about the meaning of a lawbreaker, and when told a lawbreaker breaks the law, he assumes his windbreaker breaks wind.
