Today’s post is for my little sis, who done got grad-u-tatered from college. Congrats, Grad! You made it. It now occurs to me that Brown Bag Piggie should really be sporting a mortarboard. Alas. Imagine it, won’t you?

OMG! I just saw this! Yay thanks!!! It’s my fave phrase!!!!!
The pig has escaped its poke.
“Poke”? Ah, must be a quaint Southern-ism.
The scheme entailed the sale of a suckling pig in a poke (bag). The wriggling bag would actually contain a cat (not particularly prized as a source of meat) that was sold to the victim in an unopened bag. The French term acheter (un) chat en poche (to buy a cat in a bag) refers to an actual sale of this nature, as do many European equivalents, while the English expression refers to the appearance of the trick.
