Insult - Drabble

 Note:-A Drabble is an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length.

One day a small pig was sitting alone in a pensive mood.

His mother came and said, "chalo, get ready beta, you have to go to mudschool"

He said in a low and sad voice, "Mom, I wont go to mud"

She asked him pleasingly "Why beta?"

With tears rolling in his eyes, he murmured "All the pigs in mudschool make fun of me all the time"

She hugged him and asked "What did they say?"
She had exploded with anger and fiercely shook her body when she heard those words from his son.

They teased him, "Human, human ........... human!!! "

PS : Nothing offensive towards pigs and humans , but am not sure about the humans  :) :) :)

Sarcasm hits hard on those who get it.

Though its funny that pigs and humans, or any specie for that matter dont share a common language. So when we can abuse by their names, why can't they abuse by ours?
Nice one!

Cheers Mahesh.

One shouldn't feel affronted or demeaned when treated with gross insensitivity, insolence, or contemptuous rudeness. If humans can feel the pinch of such approach, why not animals whose innocent names are associated with sarcasm? There are two ways to live a life, the styles are different but the achievements are the same - either Gandhiji's ( Lay open both your cheeks to be blown by the opponent) or Subhas Chandra Bose's ( Give me blood and I'll give you Freedom, which is like ..An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth- Hebrew saying).
After going through your post, I am just reminded of this light joke, apart from the serious message:

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
Neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
The husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws'

Well written. Animals are far better and civilised than humans... the so-called most evolved creature among species...
