Naming a Pig

A defendant was found in contempt of court and fined $200 for calling the judge a pig.

Following the charge, the defendant asked the judge, “Does this mean I cannot call a judge a pig?”

The judge sternly rebuked, “It absolutely means you may not call a judge a pig!”

“Well, can I call a pig a judge then?” asked the man.

Humoring the man, the judge replied, “I see no harm in calling a pig a judge, if you so choose.”

The man gave a wry smirk as he said, “Good day, Judge.”
