    There was once a man who stole a pig. He went to the house where the pig was in the night, and he couldn't bring her home. He saw a rope hanging on the wall and he took it to tie it around the legs of the pig. A few days later he went to confession and said to the priest "I stole a rope sir I stole a rope sir." He said it again and again. The priest got tired of listening to him and said to him "why are you saying that so often." The man then answered "but there was a pig to the end of it."
