“When will people stop eating ground pork?"/"When pigs fly.”

"When pigs fly” is an old saying about an impossibility and a time that never comes. “Until pigs fly, all pork is ground pork” was posted on Twitter by Ejigantor on October 15, 2016.

A riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on August 11, 2019:

Q: When will people stop eating ground pork?
A: When pigs fly.


Other “when pigs fly” jokes include “Pigs can fly…They just gotta pay for two seats” and “What would happen if pigs could fly? Bacon would go up.”


Wikipedia: When pigs fly
The phrase “when pigs fly” (alternatively, “pigs might fly") is an adynaton—a figure of speech so hyperbolic that it describes an impossibility. The implication of such a phrase is that the circumstances in question (the adynaton, and the circumstances to which the adynaton is being applied) will never occur. The phrase has been used in various forms since the 1600s as a sarcastic remark.
