 +====== Pig ======
 +
 +Pressmen are called pigs by compositors,​ sometimes by way of sport, and sometimes by way of irritation; in the same way the press room is called a pigstye. When the compositors wish to teaze them, they will grunt when a pressman goes into the [[c:​composing|composing]] room; but they rarely venture to do this in the press room. In Moxon'​s time they were called Horses. //See// [[a:​ancient-customs|Ancient Customs]]. ​
