Jokes about opportunity cost

So this guy is driving down the high and passes an orchard… 

He sees this farmer holding up a pig so that it can gobble apples right off the tree.  The pig is going crazy eating apples. 

"That’s the craziet thing I ever saw," the guy tells himself and he pulls over to the side of the road, gets out of the car, and goes up to the farmer. 

"Hey, I couldn’t help noticing what you were doing.  Does your pig like apples?"

The farmer says, "My pig loves apples." 

"Well, if you don’t mind my saying so, if you took a stick and knocked the apples on the ground instead of lifting the pig up, you would save lots of time." 

And the farmer answers, "What’s time to a pig?" 

That is attributed to Paul Willis, and is from Peter Kaminsky’s new and excellent (for foodies) Pig Perfect.
