Lore du Jour ~ Pig in a poke

A serial writer’s notebook ~ from the pen behind Lore of the Underlings, an episodic epic…

Folks, here’s a fresh-poured snort of Lore involving a couple of piggy innkeepers, an ambitious pair of tavern owners with more than grog and pub grub in mind.

To be sure, they’re archetypal characters. I bet you can think of a few progenitors. Even musical ones (think Les Mis).

Charlatans. Snake-oil salesmen. Grifters. What would we ever do without them?!

“Wife, I have a scheme today.”

“Husband, you must have read my mind.”

“Our chump’s come in.”

“We just need to scam him.”

“And leave this lowlife lot behind.”

“I’m thinking a con job should do the trick.”

“A shell game…”

“Or hoax…”

“Like pig-in-a-poke.”


“Then we sneak up the social ladder.”

“And break into high society.”


“First class, here we come at last!”
