She had a friend.

F U N E X?  S V F X.  F U N E M?  S V F M.


      One day, the Chicken and the Pig were involved in a passionate discussion of Farmer


Brown`s benevolence towards them and the other farmyard animals. The Chicken was the


most appreciative of them all, or so it seemed. The Pig, on the other hand had some


reservations. One thing led to another during their highly regarded estimation of their


Benefactor and Master. The Chicken had always been especially fond of the way in which


Farmer Brown had left him in charge of the other hens, especially as they made their way


to market.


     The Pig was somewhat grateful for the way Farmer Brown had always been concerned


about his weight. It seemed that Farmer Brown was always encouraging him to eat as much


corn as he could possibly contain. So, the Porker was absolutely gung-ho, when the


Chicken bought up the suggestion that the farmyard animals should get together to cook


up a dinner of appreciation for Farmer Brown. They put their heads and resources


together and decided that they would put on a particularily sumptuous breakfast for


their kind Master.


     It was unanimously decided that the Chicken would be in charge of all the



arrangements for the surprise feast. The Chicken had never been shy about ``crossing the


road``as far as being inventive about such decisive matters, so he brainstormed with the


horse, dog and cow and the rest of the members of the Farmyard Association. Finally, it


was decided that the Chicken would have the final say as to the arrangements. They were


all ecstatic and envisioned that the surprise breakfast would, indeed, be a resounding


success!


     The dinner table was gorgeously set. The settings were perfect, and were, by far,


worthy of a front cover shoot for Chateleine magazine. However, the menu had not yet


been discussed at that particular juncture. At this point in time, the Chicken took the


Porker aside and offered to supply the eggs...if the Porker would agree TO SUPPLY THE


BACON.
