For all that one can tell, this pig has lost his marbles--he stands on top of a garbage heap with horns fixed to his head ("to be as handsome as a bull"); literally explodes when he's angry and (literally) loses his head; starts cavorting like a clown and explodes again when no one laughs; plays a mother and a baby, plants himself in the ground like a flower. . . until that off-and-on head falls out of a tree and loses its horns--whereupon he puts it back on his head "for good," reconciled to being a real pig. A cartoonland burlesque that's especially gross in this form.
