A pig and a cat were walking down a dirt path. The pig was very stupid, so the cat had to explain everything to him. When the cat was talking to the pig about something, he (the cat) accidentally fell down a deep pit. He asked the pig to go back to their house and grab a rope.
The pig soon returned with a sturdy rope.
'Throw it down!'
So the pig threw the whole rope down the pit.
'You idiot! You were supposed to grab hold of one end!'
The pig, after thinking a while, jumped down the pit and grabbed hold of the rope.
