  • Oink, oink. Pig. [Snorts]

  • Hi. [Snorts]

  • Ronnie, pig. Ronnie, pig. I'm not a pig.

  • Sometimes I'm a pig. Today I'm going to teach you not 10,

  • but 11-watch it-pig expressions.

  • So, maybe

  • you have heard things like this on TV or in movies where somebody talks about a piggy bank,

  • and your brain goes: "Pig, yes. Bank, yes. What? Together?

  • There's a pig in the bank?

  • Oh, this is crazy." So, I'm going to teach you some crazy expressions about pigs.

  • [Snorts] Ready? 11 of them.

  • "Pig" and "Piggy", they're the same thing with a slight variation.

  • "Piggy" is more of a cute word that we use to talk about a pig. So children would probably

  • say: "piggy", or if you want to be cute, you can say: "piggy" instead of "pig".

  • Depends how cute you want to be.

  • So the first one, one of the... Probably the most common expression we use with "pig" is

  • "pig out".

  • Pig out. So, the pig's leaving? Not sure, here. So, "pig out" means you ate

  • so much. If you're going to use the past tense, we would say: "pigged out".

  • For example: "I went to a restaurant last night, and I ate so much food;

  • I pigged out. I ate everything,

  • and I'm really, really full."

  • Pigs eat anything and everything. Pigs eat a lot.

  • They even eat bacon.

  • Yeah, they're cannibals. So, pigs, if you pig out or pigged out, it means you

  • ate a lot of food. Delicious. So you can say, for example:

  • "I pigged out last night." or

  • "He pigged out last night.", "I'm going to pig out." Doesn't matter.

  • The next one. Oo, look at my hair, yeah. So, if you might notice that I have some crazy

  • hair today, these, the hair style that I have, these are called "pigtails".

  • I'm not sure why. Pigs definitely have tails, but the tails on pigs are spirally or curly, but

  • this hairstyle that I have is called a pigtail. Now, if my hair was at the back and tied at the back

  • like this, it would be a "ponytail".

  • I don't know why humans have to have hair that relate

  • to animals. We are a strange bunch. So, "pigtails" is a hairstyle

  • -hello, marker

  • -like this.

  • Next one-oh, my mom said this to me a lot-a "pig pen" or a "pig sty". Now,

  • a pig pen or a pig sty is the place where the pig lives.

  • Like all other animals in the world; cows,

  • horses, pigs - they don't have, like, vacuum cleaners, or maid service, or really anything,

  • and their place is really dirty. Cows, sheep, anything, any animal that lives in a barn

  • or in a farm, they're dirty. Chickens, pretty dirty, pretty smelly. A pig pen or a pig sty

  • means that your room or your place is really, really, really dirty. So,

  • if you're... Maybe somebody says:

  • "Wow, your room is like a pig pen." It means your room is really dirty.

  • You should clean it. Mm-hmm. Or don't. It's your choice.

  • Next one-oh, McDonalds-sometimes you get really, really, really bad food-

  • McDonalds-

  • and it's actually called "pig slop",

  • because like I said before, pigs, they eat anything. So

  • "pig slop" refers to really, really terribly disgusting food

  • that looks really bad, too, actually.

  • So "pig slop" means bad food that you have to eat. Mm-hmm.

  • The next one, this is an adjective and it describes a person: "pig-headed".

  • Yeah, it's not really a person with a pig head; that's, again, strange.

  • "Pig-headed" means the person

  • is very, very, very stubborn or they will not change their mind.

  • So if somebody is pig-headed, they're not very easy to get along with.

  • Are you pig-headed?

  • I am. I'm ponytail-headed. I'm okay.

  • Next one-uh-oh, this is slang, oo, slang, yeah-you see this a lot in movies,

  • jokes about bacon happen a lot: "pig" is the slang term for a police officer.

  • So you will hear people calling police officers "pigs". [Snorts]

  • I'm not too sure why. They don't eat donuts.

  • Oh, they do eat donuts, that's why, I get it now. Okay, so

  • never, ever call a police officer a pig unless you would like to go to jail or get beaten down.

  • So if you're ever arrested by a nice, fancy police officer, never call them a pig.

  • It is slang that you can use with your friends, but never to their face.

  • You will be in some serious manure,

  • which means sheep poo, if you do this.

  • I've warned you: Don't use it in front of a police officer.

  • Next one: "piggy bank".

  • Do you have a piggy bank, or did you have a piggy bank when you

  • were a child? A "piggy bank" is a pig... Oh, Ronnie's got to draw.

  • Pig. Oh, pretty good. Oh, this is a good pig. Oh, perfect.

  • Good pig. So, a piggy bank is the figure of a pig,

  • and it has a slot at the top where you get to put all your money and save your money.

  • So, piggy banks are synonymous with saving money. Sometimes what happens is you save

  • up so much money,

  • but there's a problem because the piggy bank only has one hole,

  • so you have to smash the piggy bank and get your money out.

  • When I was a child, I had a piggy bank,

  • but the cool thing about my piggy bank is it had a hole at the bottom, so I didn't have

  • to smash it. I think I might still have my piggy bank.

  • If you would like to empty your

  • piggy bank and send some money to me

  • and www.engvid.com, we always accept your generous donations.

  • A couple piggies here and there, we're good. www.engvid.com, donation button, there's a heart.

  • Do it.

  • Do it now.

  • One really interesting thing, thanks to crazy English-and

  • hi, Nadia, this is for you-we

  • have something called a "piggy back".

  • Now, this is very strange. It's actually called a "piggy back ride" or

  • you might hear a "piggy back race". So, all different things conjure

  • in the mind, but a "piggy back ride" is basically someone jumps on your back, and you run with them.

  • Nothing to do with pigs. I'm not too sure. It'd be more like

  • "a person on my back race", but I guess just to be cool, we call it a "piggy back race".

  • Maybe you've had a piggy back race - someone jumps on your back and you got to run. Really fun.

  • Homework, do it.

  • This is an expression that we, as women-hi-usually say to men.

  • I've never been called... Never mind.

  • Most of the time, it's what women say to men. Now, if somebody calls you a pig

  • -[snorts]-

  • they don't think that you're actually an animal.

  • It means you're a pervert. "Pervert" means

  • you have said something sexual to the person that they do not like.

  • So if you make sexual comments or sexual advances to someone

  • and they don't like it, or you're being rude,

  • they will call you a pig. "You're a pig!" Okay?

  • This is a bad thing. So please, keep your comments to yourself.

  • It's not cool to be called a pig at all, in any case.

  • I was talking earlier about using the expression "piggy" to be cute.

  • Cute little piggy. So,

  • you can say something like this:

  • "I'm going to be a little piggy... and eat all of the pizza!"

  • This is related to "pig out". So you can say, just to warn people:

  • "I'm going to be a little piggy, and eat all the cake."

  • And this kind of gives you an excuse to eat

  • everything, because you say:

  • "I'm going to be a piggy", and it's cute, so eat all the

  • cake. Perfect. Try it. Okay?

  • And the last one: "little piggy". Now,

  • we can use it here: "I'm a little piggy, you're a little piggy", but when I was a child

  • -this is crazy-I had feet.

  • Do you have feet? I had two feet, and on my feet I had toes.

  • Not "foot fingers", they're called "toes". So, on my

  • feet, I have one, two, three, four, five... They don't look like that. I have five toes.

  • My mom and my dad used to sing a song, and it's called "Little Piggy".

  • This little piggy went to market (that's the big toe),

  • this little piggy stayed home,

  • this little piggy rented a DVD at Blockbuster,

  • this little piggy went to the mall,

  • and this little piggy had none.

  • No, I've done it wrong. Anyways,

  • Mom, can you hook me up with the "Little Piggy" song?

  • Anyways, the toes on children, we call "piggies".

  • This little piggy went to market,

  • this little piggy stayed home,

  • this little piggy had bread and butter,

  • this little piggy had none,

  • and this little piggy ran

  • wee, wee, wee, wee, wee, all the way home.
