Never Try to Teach a Pig to Sing documents the thriving folklore tradition that circulates in the workplace. Alan Dundes and Carl Pagter have collected more than two hundred and fifty qsigns of the timesqa€”the office memoranda, parodies, cartoons, and poems that daily make their way through copy machines, interoffice mail systems, and fax machines and are affixed to bulletin boards and water coolers. The rich vein of urban folklore tapped by this imaginative volume constitutes a great testament to one of the world's most prolific authorsa€”anonymous. The popularity of the items featured in this timely book is apparent by their reproduction in mass or popular cultural forma€”as greeting cards, plaques, and bumper stickersa€”reminding us of the inevitable interplay between folklore and mass culture. Dundes and Pagter clearly demonstrate the existence of folklore in the modern urban technological world and refute the notion that folklore reflects only the past.Even now that professional baseball, football, and basketball teams do have large numbers of Black athletes on their rosters, the leadership positions, e.g., quarterbacks, coaches, ... Caroa€” lina and the University of California, Berkeley.
