Your morning adorable: Piglet learns to sit

May 17, 2010 | 12:00 pm

If there's something cuter than a piglet's huge grin (think "Babe" as he sings his own version of "Jingle Bells"), we are at a loss to imagine what it might be. 

Well, maybe we can think of just one thing: a piglet grinning as it learns to do tricks.

We're big fans of Lulu, the piglet pet of YouTube user CowboysDelight shown learning to sit on command in the video above. We knew pigs were smart -- just one look at another pig, Lola, playing a set of musical bicycle horns was enough to tell us that -- but Lulu just goes the extra mile, smiling like a beauty pageant contestant while she learns her new trick.

If we were judging a pig pageant, we'd definitely give Lulu high marks in the talent category -- and we're pretty sure we'd name her Miss Congeniality, as well.
