Little piggy

Hubs and I were watching TV last night when the new Geico commercial came on.  (Have you noticed a theme here lately? I love commercials.) The one we watched featured the little piggy going "Wee, wee, wee all the home."

This launched into a controversy which I hope all of you will settle.

In the story we all told to our children, was the little piggy happy or sad?  Was his "wee, wee, wee" a gleeful one or a teary one? 

What do you think?

I'll tell you my take on it later. 

As you can see, we had an exciting weekend.

Looking forward to your thoughts in the comments!


Love the comments.  Keep 'em coming!

Also, CPQ has written a wonderful tribute to her dad. Today is his birthday. Be sure to head on over and wish him a happy one!

definitely teary

I've always taken it as teary too.

I took it as a standard pig noise. You know, "oink" doesn't really line up with the sound pigs make, they actually have a squeal that sounds more like "wee". No emotion either way.

Delurking cause I can't resist....love the pigs...my kids thought the name for toes was pigs until they were 3...anyway, we say "All the way home" in our saddest sing song voice ever....

I've always thought he was sad, too, although now I can't figure out why! :)

I've always thought it was a sad little piggy.... Doesn't the rhyme go "this little piggy cried wee wee wee, all the way home"? Although cried doesn't necessarily mean cried, as in sad, now, does it? Hmmmmmm

I have never thought of it before and now have existential angst that I've unwittingly exposed my children to the full glory of a hog in the throes of disappointment.

And yes, those were all my big words for the day.

Sad. Most things in Mother Goose Rhymes end not well. I actually CHANGED the lyrics to "Rock-a-bye, Baby" when my daughter was born. As if putting her down for a nap in a tree to was not enough to frighten her, I was not about to soothe her to sleep with the imagery of cracking, falling branches as she plummeted to earth. REALLY!!!

(BTW: ". . .Mommy will catch you if you should fall, because you're the sweetest baby of all. . .")

I'm with Larissa...just thought it was normal pig squealing. Our family always said that part in a real excited tone, though, so if I had to pick, I'd say happy.
