A Serbian Joke

One of my favourite clients is a Serb, but I have never been there.

However, my host this week in Romania and Bulgaria has, and told me something that appealed to me.

It seems the Serbs are a highly carnivorous race, even by Balkan standards. One Serb is alleged to have said, "Until I taste lion, I shall remain convinced that the king of the animals is the pig."

Talking of pigs, Churchill, who was fond of them, said, "Dogs look up to you; cats look down on you; but pigs look at you face to face, as an equal."
