A few days later, Templeton was waiting for the slop to arrive. As he leaned against the side of the fencepost, he noticed that a pickup truck was pulling up. It was loaded with barrels of apples. As it was going by, the back end burst open, and a full barrel of apples tumbled out and crashed into the ditch near the fence. The driver didn't notice and drove away.
Templeton heard his gigantic belly grumble. As large as it was, he had emptied it long ago. Licking his limits, Templeton waddled and rolled and crawled as best he could over towards the broken barrel. He reached it in a forty seconds. He rolled into a sitting position in the apples.
Somehow, he managed to hoist one up. They were pretty big apples. Each was roughly the size of him. He opened his mouth and chowed down...
...An hour later, Templeton had devoured half the apples, and he was sitting amongst a pile of cores. With his stomach finally a bit more full, he decided to save the rest for later, and turned and went to leave. Of course, he coudn't do it right that second. His now full stomach was stretched out a bit more. After he adjusted, he made his way over towards the pigpen as he saw Lurvey approaching it with the pail. He quickened his pace.
As Lurvey finished and walked away, Templeton finally arrived and struggled up onto the trough, his stomach gurgling. He stared at the slop and patted his stomach. Could he really eat that after that large meal of apples? Of course he could! A true glutton doesn't eat to get full. He just eats for the sake of eating! He slid down onto the on his belly and landed with a splash in the slops, his mouth wide open so that he could eat the second he landed.
Templeton began swimming across the slops, eating as he went. He began to grow a bit larger. However, as he swam, he slowly ground to a halt. He stopped eating and looked up. His stomach had swelled up so much that he was jammed in tight between the sides of the trough.
Deciding that that was enough for one day, he managed to unstick himself, and he crawled out and slid out and landed on his back. He moaned slightly as he enormous belly almost crushed him. Feeling a bit uncomfortable, he waddled and jiggled back over towards to the barn to sleep in the haybales. He found that he wasn't going very fast. His gut swung from side to side, sweeping the ground, and his entire body jiggled as he went like Jell-O.
