Ellie Tomlin was the wife of politician Robert Tomlin and just like him she was also in politics, but she wasn't as good as he was.
To say she was not too bright was an understatement, she was dumb and extremely clueless as to what people really thought of her. Most people just lied to her and pretended that she was a 'nice person' to be around, even though she was oblivious as to what they really were saying.
She made the mistake one evening of firing one of her caterers after a gala dinner ball went from bad to worse when an over-cooked roast caused one of the guests to have a fit, later that evening said caterer put a potion in her favorite cookies.
"Mrs Tomlin, I am so sorry about what happened."
"That's alright, I fired him."
"What? You fired Marco?"
"Now you've done it... Marco is extremely upset because of what you did."
"Oh i'm sure he'll be fine."
"Well I hope you get your just desserts for that, you idiotic swine!"
Her secretary scowled at her before stomping off to her office, she looked around and saw a plate of cookies sitting there by her presidential desk, just as she was about to take one - her assistant showed up.
"Stop! Don't eat those."
"And why shouldn't I? They look yummy."
"Because...uh..they're bad for you."
"But they look so yummy.."
"No wait! Don't. They've got a potion in them."
"Oh Evan, have you been watching The Emperor's New Groove again?"
"No.. even though that is my absolute favorite Disney film."
"I'm sure these cookies are safe to eat.."
She reached over to take a bite of them, and just as she did she started feeling a little bit funny.. and her skin was turning a more pinkish colour.
"Are you alright?"
"I'm fine, never been better."
"But your skin..."
"It's probably just some skin condition or something, probably will go away within a few days or something."
"I don't think so, I don't think there's been any skin-conditions like the one you have.."
"Well for one thing, you're starting to look..umm...heavy."
What Evan was saying was indeed true, it seemed that she was starting to round out and get a more chubby physique as her clothes changed into a long silky red dress.
"You're looking very...uh..round..and uh..pink."
Her hands transformed into pig hooves as did her feet, as a curly pig tail grew out of the bottom of her spine and her ears became pigs ears.
"Uh...I don't know how to put this but...you're turning into a pig.."
"Silly Evan, you shouldn't have watched Willow over 100 times."
"For your information I have only seen that movie 20 times in a row and that was with my kid."
She was starting to look more and more pig-like by the minute even though she didn't notice it, her nose got bigger and became like a pig's nose as her face pushed out into a more porcine snout - finalizing the transformation. She was now a female pig-monster, bearing more than a striking resemblance to Miss Piggy.
"What is it, Evan?"
"You're...looking very pig-like."
"Let me see."
She went on over to the mirror and she screamed when she saw the swine staring back at her.
"Eeek! I'm a pig-lady. But how can this be?"
"I told you..it's Marco, the ex caterer. He put a potion in the cookies, a transformation potion - one that turned you into a pig, literally."
"I'm so sorry I didn't notice it."
"Well I just hope that no one sees me like this."
Just then Stephen Colbert stopped by to talk to Evan when he got a glimpse at her.
"Hey there Evan."
"Hi there Stephen my man, how's it going?"
"Can't complain. Woah, who's the Miss Piggy lookalike over there?"
"That's Ellie i'm afraid.."
"Yes. She ate some cookies that contained a potion and now she's a pig-lady."
"I see. Hey Tomlin, nice snout!"
"Better be careful though, don't want to catch Swine flu do you?"
"Hey, that's not nice!"
"Relax...i'm just joking with you."
"And I already know about what happened at the gala dinner and the whole you-firing-Marco just because of an overcooked roast thing. After all it was all over the news last week, even I had a jab at it - and so did the other late night guys."
"They all did?"
"Yep. But don't you worry, as long as you try and stay out of the public eye this time I think you'll be safe."
"Well maybe..i'm not making any promises."
And with that Stephen left and said goodbye to Evan before heading off to do his own show, Evan and Ellie decided to go into the office to think things through for a few second.
As for what happened to Mrs Ellie Tomlin, Ellie tried her best to stay out of the public eye but some insiders got the scoop on her new condition and alerted the press, soon it was all over the news. And as it was on the news, Letterman, Leno, Conan, Stewart, Colbert, Ferguson and Kimmel are made fun of this as part of their monologue jokes. It actually gave Leno a new idea for once, he brought back his classic comedy sketches but introduced a new character Ellie Pigglin who was played by none other than Miss Piggy herself.
Remember, if you are in the political buisness - never ever fire your caterers especially if they are a master potion maker like Marco is or you might find yourself oinking rather than speaking.
