Text from the story:

If you call someone a "pig," you probably don't mean it as a compliment. When you think of pigs, you may imagine them as lazy, dirty animals that eat a lot and make big messes. You have probably also heard people use the expression "sweat like a pig." So the truth about pigs may really surprise you!

Pigs are really very smart animals. They have a strong sense of direction and can find their way home from far away. They also recognize names given to them by humans and will come when they are called. People have even taught pigs to play computer games! In one case, pigs used their snouts to move joysticks and were able to hit their targets eight out of ten times!
