Remember, it's a waste of time to try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig. Maybe the whole point is to annoy the pig.


Sometimes, just sometimes, pigs learn to sing.

For me, though... it works more like a soap box, in ye olde street corner style. There's something fundamentally right in providing a place for anyone to momentarily elevate their voice above the crowd, but in turn they must hold equally sacred the right of the crowd to reply with mockery and jeers.

Pantomime, I guess, is pretty close too - Oh no he didn't, Oh yes he did!. And it is, always, a pantomime! :)
