This little piggy...

Posted by Word Camel on February 25, 2004

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had ________
This little piggy had none
And this little piggy cried
Whee whee whee whee all the way home.

I think I have discovered a regional variation of this. When I was a child the piggy had roast beef. A Btitish friend says the piggy had jam and bread. So I was just wondering if it is generally the case that the piggy in Britain was meatless or not? Any thoughts?
