For some decades I have collected toy pigs. I buy very few nowadays, because I simply have too many. Every now and then, though, one comes up that I cannot resist.The capitalist pig was one, and the irony is that although he was only 3€, I didn't have enough money to buy him. It was the very end of a vide-grenier and I'd spent all my money: all except 2.80€. Fortunately the vendor turned out to be flexible about the price. That was a few years ago. Then, a few weeks before I wrote this, I found another pig.
