But then when she feeds the pigs she feeds the pigs she says,"They're so dumb I can open the gate and yell at them." But when she yells, "Hey you dumb pigs!" the pigs run out! Megan runs to the house to find that the pigs are in there! Her dad gets angry at her. Megan yells,"Hey you dumb pigs!" the pigs run out! When Megan gets to school she finds that the pigs are in the principals office. Megan yells,"Hey you dumb pigs and they run out! Then Megan goes to class. She finds a baby pig in her desk. Meagan's teacher said,"Megan! Get that dumb pig out of here!" Megan said,"Pigs aren't dumb, they're actually smart!" After school Megan goes onto the bus but there's pigs in the bus. The pigs drive all the way back into the pen.
