Story of Egg and Bacon
The fable of the chicken and the pig is about commitment to a project or cause.
There are many variants as to how the Chicken and the Pig meet and the level of the relationship between the two.
However, in every variant, the Chicken suggests that the two involve themselves in a scheme involving bacon (or ham) and eggs and sometime suggest a breakfast or setup a restaurant.
In reply, the Pig always notes that, for the Chicken, only a contribution is required (as a chicken can simply lay an egg and then resume normal activities), while for the Pig a “total commitment” or sacrifice is needed as in order to make bacon, the pig must be slaughtered.
