Aphrodisios was the big male hog on the farm. He mostly farted and burped, but sometimes he would get up to eat. When he got thirsty, he would push a metal valve with his snout. The water would shoot straight up his nose and then drip down to his mouth.
One day, an electric cow wire was left near Aphrodisios’ pen. Somehow, the wire crossed over his metal water pipe. It was live. When Aphrodisios got up to drink, he put his snout on the valve and, ZAP, he squealed so loud everyone on the farm heard him.
Aphrodisios never trusted the water again.
