Co-Worker 1: Oh, no!

Co-Worker 2: What?

CW1: Big Red died!

CW2: Who he?

CW1: A pool-diving pig, actually. Says here he belonged to something called Randall’s High-Diving Pig Show. Apparently he dived into a heated pool and was electrocuted.

CW2: Mmmmm-mmmm. Barbecue time.

CW1: I dunno, man. Electrocution might make the meat taste funny.

CW2: Good point there. I suspect that even the cleanest electricity is no match for the flavor of hickory smoke.

CW1: Yeah, tastewise, I think the best you could hope for would be that the electricity would cause the chlorine in the pool water and the sodium in the pig to bond ionically and give you something like salted pork. Only, you know, instantaneously, instead of being cured for months.

CW2: Maybe they could just serve him with cabbage.
