One day the man finds that he has no money, and decides that selling the pig is a much better idea than working for a living. However, his forgetfulness causes him all sorts of problems in taking the pig to market. And when he finally does get it there, he receives a beating for his trouble. In the end, he decides that it might be easier to keep the pig and get a job.
