Three Little Pigs went out to dinner one night. The waiter comes and takes their drink order. “I would like a Sprite,” said the first little piggy. “I would like a Coke,” said the second little piggy. “I want water, lots and lots of water,” said the third little piggy. The drinks are brought out and the waiter takes their orders for dinner. “I want a nice big steak,” said the first piggy. “I would like the salad plate,” said the second piggy. “I want water, lots and lots of water,” said the third little piggy. The meals were brought out and a while later the waiter approached the table and asked if the pigs would like any dessert. “I want a banana split,” said the first piggy. “I want a root beer float,” said the second piggy. “I want water, lots and lots of water,” exclaimed the third little piggy. “Pardon me for asking,” said the waiter, “but why have you only ordered water?” The third piggy says, “Well, somebody has to go ‘Wee, wee, wee, all the way home!”
