The farmer welcomed them in, but cautioned them that there were only two spare beds, and that one of them would have to sleep in the barn with the cows and pigs. After a short conference, the police chief agreed to take the barn. Shortly after retiring, a knock was heard on the door of the farmhouse. The farmer answered to find the police chief standing there, complaining that he could not sleep. There were pigs in the barn, he said, and he was reminded of the days when everyone called him a pig.
