Sleeping With the Pigs

pigsAn American, an Englishman, and a Frenchman found themselves stranded along a rural country road. They traveled together walking down the road. As it was starting to get dark, they saw a farmhouse. They went to the front door and knocked, hoping the kind farmer would grant them shelter for the night.
“Well, I only got room for  two of you,” explained the farmer. “One of you will have to sleep in the barn with my pigs.”
The three travelers looked at each other and the American nodded to indicate that he would be the one to sleep with the pigs.
As everyone snuggled down for the night, it wasn’t even half and hour, and the American was knocking on the door. “Please! Will someone trade with me! I tried, but the stench and the noise were too much!”
The Englishmen took pity and said, “All right, I’ll sleep with the pigs.”
But it wasn’t a half hour later and there was a knock at the door. The poor Englishman was in tears from the horrid smell and begging for someone to trade with him.
The Frenchman shrugged his shoulders and headed for the barn.
Yet again, it hadn’t been even a half hour, and the knock came at the door.
It was the pigs!
