Hog hooking

Dan had an interesting experience today. He hooked a hog. Now, many of you may know that Dan is quite a bass fisherman. He has never hooked a hog (another name for a large-mouth bass) quite the size of the hog he hooked today. Dan was working in the pig pen repairing a feeder. He needed another tool from the shop. He left his bucket of tools in the pig pen and went to the shop. As he returned to the pig pen, he heard an awful scream that continued unceasingly. The cause of the screaming became apparent as Dan entered the pig pen. A bungee cord was in the bucket of tools that Dan left in the pig pen. Somehow, the pig had managed to hook one end of the bungee cord to the feeder and the other end was hooked in the pig’s mouth. The bungee cord was stretched taut with a feeder on one end and a terrified, screaming pig on the other end. The pig pulled with all four feet, backing away from the feeder. The bungee cord was stretching tighter and tighter. The pig was screaming louder and louder.  Before Dan could decide whether to “fish or cut bait”, the hook slipped from the pig’s mouth and shot like a bullet toward the feeder. “Wow!” thought Dan, reflecting on his years of ‘hog-fishin’. “You should have seen the size of the one that got away!”
