  • Scots: a pig.

  • When I was a kid, I used to listen to an album where Jean Ritchie sang "Children's Songs & Games from the Southern Mountains." One of the songs was about a bunch of farmyard animals--a horse that "goes neigh-neigh" and a sheep that "goes baa-baa" and a pig that "goes griffy-gruffy."

    Maybe grumphie and griffy-gruffy aren't related, but I feel a little more at ease about why that pig wasn't just oinking.
