Miss Piggy's Diamond Ring



I wanted to share this crazy story with you all......
Last week, Anne Moon, a British grandmother lost a diamond when she went to pet a 10 week old pig named Ginger. Ginger evidently thought she was offering something tasty. Mrs. Moon said she was petting the piglet at the Easingwold Maize Maze Farm, near York, England, when the swine used its mouth to slip off her beloved jewel. It clamped its mouth around her hand and swallowed the biggest diamond off her $2500 ring! The ring was a gift from her husband thirty years ago and so had great sentimental value. The upset Mrs Moon said, "If the pig wasn't so dirty I think we would have put him in the back of the car and taken him home!" So the farmer who owns the pig had to wait for nature to take its course. It's not like looking for a needle in a haystack. It's looking for a small gem in a pile of pig poo. Carefully. Without breathing. No word whether he succeeded or not....

This has me wondering...What would it take for me to sift through a big pile of piggy poop? It has to be a extremely important personal belonging, I'm sure about that!

I'm also wondering how many of you would get your hands dirty? Think of your most prized posession...would you sort through pig poo for it?
