Have you ever eaten so much that your belly hurts? Have you ever had four scoops of ice cream even though your mother said you could only have two? And then gone out for McDonald's?
If you have, you were “pigging out” (and you were probably sick afterwards). Pigs, like people, eat both meat and vegetables. But instead of just one kind of vegetable, some rice and a piece of chicken, pigs often eat many different things all at once.
Many farmers or families who own pigs often feed them scraps of whatever they have leftover from other animals' or people's lunches or dinners.
Because of this, whenever a person eats a lot of different kinds of food all at once it is often called “pigging out.”
While pigs don't always eat a lot of food, we often say a person eating everything he or she can find instead of just small amounts of one food at a time is “pigging out.”

如果你曾經做過這些事，就是在「 pigging out」（事後你可能會覺得噁心）。豬像人一樣肉菜均食，不過不像人只吃一種蔬菜、一些飯跟一塊雞肉，牠們通常一下子吃進多種食物。
