Classic story of an old woman trying to get her newly bought pig over a stile on the way home. So she asks the dog to bite her pig, but he won't. So she asks a stick to beat the dog, but it won't. So she asks a fire to burn the stick, but it won't. So she asks a stream to quench the fire, but it won't. So she asks a horse to drink the water, but it won't. So she asks a farmer to harness the horse, but he won't. So she asks a rope to whip the farmer, but it won't. So she asks a rat to gnaw the rope, but it won't. So she asks a cat to chase the rat. And the cat asks for a large bowl of milk. And once the cat has the milk, then everything goes according to clockwork and the woman and her pig get home. ( )
