George and Lynne are out. Lynne tells George that he is the love of her life and her best friend. George asks Lynne if she's sure about that. Lynne confirms that he is the love of her life but her best friend is her credit card. George expects her to say something like that.

George has gone out holding a small pig. At first glance it looks as though it maybe his money box. He has lost his wallet and for some reason he sees his piggy bank as a substitute to carry his money around in. We may chuckle at George's idea, but this could be a sign of early onset dementia.

By the time the attractive woman turns up, it seems that this is not a piggy bank at all but a real miniature pig. Its ears are clearly in a different position and it looks a little alarmed. The attractive lady has seen George holding the miniature pig but decides to not say anything.

Lynne has not mentioned the pig either. This is because she had bought it with her credit card, hence her comment. George is so marvelled at how small the pig is that he doesn't even ask her how much it cost. They are priced at £700 now so just think what it must have cost Lynne.


  1. Strange that the viewing direction flips 180 degrees between the first and second frames, and again between the second and third frames, but the red-haired woman isn't in the background of the first and third frames.

    Maybe the red-haired woman is selling miniature pigs, but only a reputable business would take credit cards, so maybe this is a kind of sponsorship where you nominally own a tiny pig or other animal but it stays at the petting zoo.

    At the start Lynne is trying to persuade George to buy the pig for her. George refuses and the red-haired woman is on the point of giving up but then Lynne decides to buy it herself. The red-haired woman then rushes off to process Lynne's credit card.

    Congratulations on two years of explaining!

  2. I don't think the camera is moving, because the hedge behind G&L is the same in all 3 frames. I think George and Lynne are circling each other in a tug-of-war over the adorable pig.
