Once upon a time, on a farm in the outskirts of a quaint village, there lived a family of pigs. They loved to frolic in the mud, eat apples, and watch the sunset. But one day, the youngest piglet fell ill and couldn’t make a sound. The other pigs were worried sick and didn’t know how to help. They tried feeding the piglet different fruits, singing songs, and even dancing to get it to make a sound, but nothing worked.
One day, while the pigs were napping under an apple tree, a wise old owl flew down and perched on a branch nearby. When the pigs woke up, they noticed the owl and asked for advice. The owl suggested the pigs try tickling the piglet’s belly to see if it would make a noise.
As soon as the piglet felt the tickle, it let out a loud “GRUNT!” The other pigs were overjoyed to hear the sound and thanked the owl for the brilliant idea. From that day on, whenever the pigs heard a “GRUNT” from any of their piglets, they knew it was a sign of good health and happiness.
And that is why, to this very day, the sound a pig makes is known as a “GRUNT.”
