Holes are appearing in the Village. No.2 describes them as an effect of the weather, ambiance anomalies, becasue people want something thay can believe in, so Two gave it to them. The holes are a nothing, it's oblivion, it's beyond all hope! So what does the Village Administration do to counter these ambiance anomolies? Pigs! Pigs are brought to the Village, and citizens are encouraged to "Keep a pig." Some families keep two pigs, they are a "two pig family." Why? Because it has been scientifically proven that swine breath has a stabilising effect on the atmosphere! Really! Aren't pigs renowned for rootling in the soil, digging holes, causing damage in the ground while they search for grubs and truffles?
But then people love it, keeping a pig makes the citizens appear as though they are "doing their bit" for the Village. The citizens want to come together to make a difference, they volunteer for pig distribution duties, they love that. But at the end of the day, "keeping a pig" is nothing more than propaganda, for their own good of course, to stop the people of the Village from worrying.
Breathe in....breathe out....Village life goes on.
