I mean, I know Midwestern white kids with white trash heritage aren't the most valuable thing on the market these days...but $1,000? Hey mom, I'd
feel REAL offended to be thought of THAT cheap!
(The "2 for" deal of $2,000 each on the package is just wrong.... She has no sense of value. )

(no reason given)
good on you for going down that route, opens the door for me with out me feeling (quite) so crass
obvs, she could have got waaaay more for them and really undersold the deal, though if the crossbow mentioned above was a really good one, i am
perhaps being overly critical.
however, i'm sure you could buy a decent pig for for about £500 (whats that in dollars? about $700? not sure).
now of course there is more meat on a pig (mind you, with obesety rates as they are, and if the kid hasnt seen much sunlight then it will have a
veal-like texture.......), but the advantages of having a child present when begging are considerable, and if you go to the country where people still
use hearth for heating, i reckon there could be a nice sideline in chimney sweeping too. i could go on but do have some
taste and decorum, so
i will leave it at that.
so it's one and a half pigs to a child? this exchange rate may seem immoral, but when TSHTF, we'll be glad of such information
