happy as a pig in clover

I may have been behaving incorrectly around clover my entire life. See, my first instinct is to count the leaves, in eternal pursuit of a four-leafed one – I’ve found three in my time. But it turns out that “being in clover” means to live life luxuriously. I should have been rolling around in it. Specifically, clover makes cows fat and healthy and happy.

So how did pigs come into it? Well, we all know that the cliché has it pigs are the most gluttonous of creatures, so who could possibly enjoy a field of clover more than a pig?
