Farm Girl’s Day Off

"It wastes your time and annoys the pig."

They say that you should never try to teach a pig to sing: it wastes your time an annoys the pig. This pig, however, seems remarkably indifferent to being in the saddle.

This card from Joey in Norway is labeled simply Seterjentens fridag (Farm girl’s day off).  One would think that she would try to find a barn dance or something, but I don’t see any barns, and this particular farm seems pretty remote. People must wander by from time to time, however; the hut on the right has a sign proclaiming Ekte geitost til salgs (“Real goat cheese for sale”).

Joey says that this card has sold over two million copies. This is Norwegian high humor, folks. Actually, come to think of it, the better saying might be the one about never wrestling with a pig: you get dirty and, besides, the pig likes it.
