    greased piglet

    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me what the underlined part in this context:

    "I know less about what to do with a crying woman than I would with a greased piglet on a New York City Subway."

    In this context,what does "greased piglet" mean ?

    Thank you.

    It's a slippery little pig. On the New York subway it would be crazy with fear and desperate to get away from all those people.

    Imagine how hard it would be for the speaker to keep hold of it.

    You would feel helpless trying to deal with a greased pig in a busy train station.
