## This tradition can also be traced back to the Old Testament period of ''Literature/TheBible'', notably the Book of Leviticus, which stated that several animals are considered unclean, including pig. This is averted in New Testament period which all foods are edible and it heavily condemns sects which forbids the consumption of some foods, notably in the Book of Timothy.

* ''[[https://www.amazon.com/Edward-Gets-Messy-Rita-Meade/dp/1481437771 Edward Gets Messy]]'' is a picture book about a pig named Edward who always does everything he can to keep clean and avoid getting messy or dirty until one day, through no fault of his own, he gets covered in paint and discovers that it isn't the end of the world. After that, he starts doing stuff like participating in sports even if it gets him muddy because he knows he can always clean up at the end of the day by taking a bath.

Actually, pigs are instinctively clean animals. But their habit of rooting the ground and rolling in whatever moisture is available creates [[CoveredInMud messy results]] in confined spaces. Also, thanks to their omnivorous instinct to probe and explore everything around them for traces of food, pigs love to make a mess by chewing things to bits and rooting around in the pieces. Rotten wood, sofa cushions, or especially straw are bound to wind up in a million tiny fragments when a pig can get at them. For a human observer, such behavior creates a strong impression of a messy, dirty, unhygienic animal. Similarly, their habit of wallowing in dirt is not without reason - a layer of mud on their bodies helps them keep cool in hot weather. This is particularly important to them because they are unable to sweat.

Actually, pigs are instinctively clean animals. But their habit of rooting the ground and rolling in whatever moisture is available creates [[CoveredInMud messy results]] in confined spaces. Despite not having that much hair, pigs aren't able to sweat, meaning that they have to roll around in cool and damp places frequently to prevent themselves from suffering heatstroke.

There's also the so-called ''{{Babe}}'' Syndrome: the tendency of city folk who have never seen a live pig in the flesh to think that pigs are cute and pink and make good pets. While pigs are very intelligent and can be trained to do tricks and such, the average barnyard porker isn't particularly cuddly. They can weigh up to a few hundred pounds and occasionally be quite aggressive. However, there are a few breeds bred specifically as pets, such as Pot-Bellied pigs, but these require specialized care that most people cannot meet.

* In the [[{{Feelies}} comic book]] included with ''HogsOfWar'', an early panel depicts a family of pigs at home before they have joined the army; the living room floor is covered with small piles of excrement. A later panel depicts the pigs about to parachute behind enemy lines; one of them says that he needs to use the toilet, but the sergeant says "You don't use the toilet! You're a pig! You do it on the floor and roll around in it! We all do!"

* In Book 9 of the ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' series, the Heffley's end up winning a baby pig at a fair, and are forced to keep it to avoid insulting the people running the fair. The pig ends up causing a lot of trouble and messes, culminating in the family leaving the pig at a petting zoo. Much to Manny's displeasure, since he and the pig had bonded at first sight. Circumstances eventually reunite the pig with the family, and they end up accepting it as a pet. The pig turns out to be pretty intelligent, since it only takes a few days for Greg's mother Susan to housebreak it. It even somehow figures out how to use the television remote.

## The prohibition is to set Jews/Muslims apart from their neighbors. While this is likely for Judaism (a common theory goes that the point of ''all'' Kashrut is to keep Jews separated from the Gentiles), it's less likely for Islam (which, for one thing, is a proselytizing religion, and for another thing, allows—even encourages—mixing with the other "Peoples of the Book"/monotheists).
