Pigs’ Legs

“But stay tuned. To use the immortal words of Wodehouse, this whole farce is picking up speed like one of the Gadarene swine rounding into the straight.” – Doug Wilson

This quote reminds me of Plato. He was really close, yet infinitely far away. The pigs were not merely “picking up speed”, they were getting legs. Obviously Wodehouse is giving us a picture, a type, a shadow, of what is the substance of this blog. We must not return to such quaint prose and idiomatic nonsense when the truth is nearby, on our hands and foreheads and other places too! We must, in the immortal words of someone who is to remain anonymous for security reasons, get legs.
