>Well, I had a contest to win a hardcover copy of JOLTED: Newton Starker's Rules for Survival and here were a few of the entries. The tough, mind bending question was: how do truffle pigs find truffles?
By dining at the world famous Truffles Restaurant in Saskatoon, SK Canada. Google map attached --Arla G
Truffle pigs find truffles as they truffle along to Buffalo where they can get a copy of JOLTED.--Pat R
I don't know about you but I eat them both and then they find comfort in my tummy.--Louise
Truffle pigs find truffles in the pigtionary and therefore don't do any sniffing or digging. There are no words or letters in the pigtionary. It contains only sounds. Our truffle pigs find the truffles somewhere between troubles and trifles. Sounds complicated, doesn't it? But really, take it from me, it's no truffle at all.--Dave C.
Truffle pigs find truffles by scouting about with their snout,
sniffing in and out,
finding the treasure,
they give out a shout.
The truffle pigs ears twitch when they are near truffles, then they use their nose to smell out where exactly the truffles are.--
and the winning entry, chosen by Josephine the truffle hunting pig, was:
Truffle pigs find truffles
With the ease a nose finds snuffles
Not a squabble, no kerfluffles
Then they stuff them into duffles
For you see, these pigs are nosey
In the woods they often mosey
Seeking truffles, though, not posy
And they root them ‘til they’re dozy.--Valerie S
