Random WOW: ' Most Combine Harvesters Working on a Field '

Highest Pig Jump

Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

That's a well-known nursery rhyme - a song for children.
Of course, it's therefore complete gibberish. Cats don't play fiddles, dogs don't laugh, and neither dishes nor spoons have the capacity nor inclination to run away.
But I haven't mentioned the jumping cow. For as you can probably guess, it is this line that is relevant to this WOW. Just like the batter in a meal of toad-in-the-hole, I've saved it till last.

Cows can't jump over the moon. Of that, we can be certain: cows can't actually jump at all - they forgot to evolve knees.

But cows aren't the farmyard animal that this WOW is concerned with. Forget about cows. Cows stink.

The animal we're interested in is the humble pig.
Pigs can't jump over the moon either. That would be insane.
But pigs can jump.

What makes them jump? The same thing as a human - a surprise!

Thus, the highest pig jump was 1.32m (132cm) - jumped by a nameless pig in 2003, when his owner dressed up as a sausage and burst into his sty at midnight.

WOW!
