At some point in your life, somebody may have told you, “You eat like a pig!” Well, after watching this video, you might consider that a compliment.
In the video, Esther the Wonder Pig has lunch with her dad, after recovering from surgery. The way she eats off of the fork is so adorable – and polite! Even though most people think pigs are messy and dirty, they’re in fact some of the cleanest animals around. Not only are they tidy animals, but they’re smart, too! According to Professor Donald Broom of Cambridge University Veterinary School, “Pigs have the cognitive ability to be quite sophisticated. Even more so than dogs and certainly three-year-olds.”
Esther’s manners prove that she is sophisticated indeed! At the end of the video, Esther’s dog pal swoops in to lick straight from the plate. He could learn a thing or two about manners from this piggy!
