Makes me think of a greased pig. Southern expression "slipperier than a greased pig".

Fun senior prank that happened at my high school in Tennessee a few years ago: Someone knew a guy that owned a farm or something and managed to obtain 3 pigs, labeled them "1", "2", and "4", drenched them in Crisco, and set them loose before the morning classes started
