    The Electric Pig

    OK, no wires are attached to the pig, but it is "the Electric Pig".

    We have a young guy in class who has accepted an electric maintenance position at one of the big hog operations around here. We started calling him the electric pig, so I figured something was in order. He is a great kid and will be a great asset to the company where he goes. Tomorrow is the last day before finals, so the presentation will be then. The dean of the department will be presenting.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    His name on it should be enough Bill.

    An electric pig? Shocking! Watt's the matter with you? This man is probably a joule of a guy. Calling him a pig surely hertz his feelings. Might even make him cry "wee, wee, wee, wee", all the way ohm.
