Erm, if we don't know what the pig trick is, is there any point in giving it a page of it's own? Or shall I just delete it?--CommanderJake, AMCW 19:48, 25 January 2007 (CET)
Pass, I'm just about to scour HFOS for a more detailed reference. I'll see what I can find.
Authors don't steal. they borrow or are inspired. Like this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_characters_in_the_Blandings_stories#Monica_Simmons
The "pig trick" may be a reference to the fantasy film "Willow".- SharleeD
Nobody knows what the pig trick is: that's sort of the point. Anyway, I just corrected this somewhere else: "begging the question" does not mean raising the question. It's a logical fallacy somewhat like defining your own terms, stating an opinion and then restating it slightly differently as if the point were then proven. Religion tends to rest on begging the question. --Old Dickens (talk) 17:19, 4 January 2013 (PST)
