Feed The Pig

July 26th, 2010


Please listen to this audio clip for your winning lottery numbers.

Not sure about you, but I have long since forgotten that I actually had a pig when I was a kid until I listened to that audio clip.

That was a good way to promoting the public to save. FeedThePig.org

Check out this video too.

By the way, do you know why it was called the Pig? Piggy Bank? And not like Kitty Bank or anything else?

In Middle English, “pygg” referred to a type of clay used for making various household objects such as jars. People often saved money in kitchen pots and jars made of pygg, called “pygg jars”. By the 18th century, the spelling of “pygg” had changed and the term “pygg jar” had evolved to “pig bank.”
