Two lovable pigs, Reggie and Lu, are really best friends. But sometimes best friends fall out. Today, they're not really happy with each other and each of them imagines how they could beat or humiliate the other.
Lu imagines that she could be Reggies dad, pick him up from school in a pram, blow raspberries on his neck and call him "My Widdle Baby" in front of all the other children.
Reggie imagines that he could be a shoemaker and make Lu some shoes that make rude noises when you walk, so everyone at school would think it was Lu, not the shoes.
They go on competing with each other to think of the most embarrassing situations, till they can't think of anything else and collapse into laughter as only best friends can. Then they are so exhausted that they imagine that, together, they are a crocodile going off in search of food.
