Lipstick-Wearing Pig?

Sept. 10, 2008 by Maxi

Had the words been used in context they probably would have slid right on by. “You can put lipstick on a Pit Bull … it’s still a Pit Bull.” But a pig?

Some are saying the statement was deliberate because the delivery was made without hesitation. Only the speaker knows.

Problem is: You can’t unring a bell

May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
