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.
