Dumbass Sayings: “Putting Lipstick on a Pig”

There’s an old saying from Tennessee, I know it’s from Texas, but it’s also from Tennessee that says “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig!” The idea is that you can cover up a problem, but it’s still a problem underneath. But putting all that aside, what I want to know is what sick, twisted, lonely pig farmer came up with this saying? This is a very disturbing phrase. Despite the fact that the image of a pig with lipstick is silly and absurd, this saying means that someone actually either did this or at least thought it up. Who in the hell would do such a thing? Who sees a pig and says “You know what? Let’s put some lipstick on that, a bonnet, and a sundress and see if we can’t have a nice romantic Saturday evening!” Then when they sobered up a little and realized they were fucking a pig they thought “Wait, you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig!” Whether or not they stopped banging the pig right then and there we’ll never know. You hope so, but something tells me they just kept on going.

Can't put lipstick on a pig? Tell that to Kermit the Frog!
