Wonder what the prize is for winning?

Isn't a hundred pigs something like 250 bucks?

My niece went to Africa to help with child care for a family that had moved there and was struggling with language courses. She was about 15 and enjoyed the chance to spend a summer in the locale.

One day, a local marriage arranger came calling. The offer for her hand in marriage was in livestock. When she e-mailed the family about the event, her father and I were discussing how many chickens a cow was worth and how the counteroffer should be proffered.

My niece was not amused.


Throw in 50 stag deer, and the fine will be 150 sows and bucks.


200 pigs. He's gonna end up in hock.

And a partridge in a pear tree?
