The student told him he had a bullet > lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting > communists in his native country who were trying to > overthrow his country’s government and install a new > communist government. > > In the midst of his story he looked at the professor > and asked a strange question. He asked, > > ‘ Do you know how to catch wild pigs?’ > > The professor thought it was a joke and asked for > the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. > > ‘You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place > in the woods and putting corn on the ground.
