Fred is going to spend the weekend of the Saint Yaya agricultural fair with his friend William. This year, William and his pig Omer are going to participate in the big race. Unfortunately, on the morning of the race, William is sick. Fred quickly decides to replace him. But how can he win the race when he has never ridden a pig? This hilarious story shows that telling the truth is always the best idea.
