The Great Rebellion

“Tonight’s the night!” stated Pig. Ready for slaughter, he was determined.

“But what about–” Hen tried to interject some reason.

“NO BUTTS! Especially not mine,” roared Pig. “They want to SMOKE my butt!”

Cow chimed in: “I’m happy here. All they take from me is milk.”

“TREASON!” roared Pig. “Just stay in the dark shadows.”

Rooster crowed, “You’re too big to stay in the shadows.”

Pig prevailed, though, and he pushed against the barn door until it broke. Lamb followed, along with Hen and her chicks. Duck and Goose were close behind.

Unmoving, Bull thought, “Stupid Pig. Already dead meat!”

    1. Thanks, Bear. Did you know:In 2006, Kansas banned Charlotte’s Web because “talking animals are blasphemous and unnatural” and passages about the spider dying were also criticized as being “inappropriate subject matter for a children’s book.”

      Seriously. It’s a wonder they haven’t banned nearly all fairy tales 🙂

      1. I’ve seen many places that banned Charlotte’s web as well as the Little House on the Prairie series, and several of the Dr. Suess books. Yet, they approve all this trash with demons and witches and the occult. I just hang my head and pray all the harder and so thankful not to have to raise little ones in this world.

      2. It had some racist phrases in it… of course, it was written in a time both pre- during-immediately after the Civil War so ya gotta expect it. It reflected the society of the time.

  1. Dear Linda,

    I thought of Animal Farm and Charlotte’s Web as others have said. Seeing your comment about Charlotte’s Web being banned in Kansas makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Good story in any event.
