Involved, or commited? An introductory joke for public speaking.

Bacon joke for public speaking, photo by Rob Owen-Wahl
What is the difference between being involved and being committed? Let me illustrate:
The pig and chicken were watching the farmer go through his daily routine and appreciated all of the hard work that he did to make the farm go.
The chicken suggested to the pig that they should do something nice for the farmer. After some consideration, they decided to make him a hearty breakfast consisting of eggs and bacon.
The chicken is involved, but the pig is committed.
I like to use this as an ice breaker and/or motivator when kicking off corporate group projects or volunteer organization efforts.
