Griddle Greaser Pete.

About this Critter:

About this critter: ‘Here comes good ol’ Greaser Pete slippin’ & slidin’, a fine flapjack he did make, on bacon he did skate!” - it’s a far lesser known short yearn about a wee Pig-man that Paul Bunyan found, stapled bacon to its feet & made skate atop of his gigantic stovetop Pancake griddle... ‑ Read Petes full story in the last slide! [1925 Yearns of the BigWoods]

...This ones dark for a couple of reasons (aside from the obvious implied potential cannibalism) - the original “griddle greasers” that where said to have helped Paul Bunyan also known as “flunkies” where unfortunately ‘products of their time.’ ‑ [google: “Paul Bunyan racism”]- I Cannot say with 100% certainty, but given the date of publication (this came a while after.) I like to think Greaser Pete  was perhaps an effort at steering away from that sorry bit of folklore? (Perhaps not.) Fortunately: folklore does change over time and Paul’s gigantic griddle eventually did become popular as a skating rink for all!
