Pigs have long been used to hunt truffles, but if they love them so much, couldn't you use a truffle to find your lost pig?

       where's my pig?   

       oh, perhaps dentworth knows! nope, she has not a clue!

       the pigs would fight for the truffles cause they wanted to eat them.   

       I just think that's funny.

       Hello my name is dentworth and I'm a truffleaholic. It has been 20 hours since I last had a Lindor truffle. Thank you.
dentworth, Feb 23 2005
  

       Well, sorry to hog the annos,   

       ahem, but if you've lost your pig,[po] look for it where you stow your truffles, and the truffles, hence, help you find your pig. + for the superior idea

       Don't all truffles eventually find pigs? How is this a new idea?

       Why are female pigs excited about truffles? The girls always dig a fungi.

       Female pigs are sow into truffles.

       Some London restaurant recently paid £20,000 pounds for a record sized truffle. The chef left it in a locked fridge over the weekend where it went off. I'll try to find an article.
