Chapter 12 - A Meeting

One evening, a few days after the writing had appeared in Charlotte's web, the spider called a meeting of all the animals in the barn cellar. They were there except Templeton

Charlotte began, "I guess we can proceed without him. Now, all of you must have noticed what's been going on around here the last few days. The message I wrote in my web, praising Wilbur, has been received. The Zuckermans have fallen for it, and so has everybody else.Zuckerman thinks Wilbur is an unusual pig, and therefore he won't want to kill him and eat him. I dare say my trick will work and Wilbur's life can be saved.

"Hurray!" cried everybody.

"Thank you very much," said Charlotte. "Now I called this meeting in order to get suggestions. I need new ideas for the web. People are already getting sick of reading the words 'Some Pig!" If anybody can think of another message, or remark, I'll be glad to weave it into the web. Any suggestions for a new slogan?"

"How about 'Pig Supreme'?" asked one of the lambs.

"No good," said Charlotte. "It sounds like a rich dessert."

"How about 'Terrific, terrific, terrific'?" asked the goose.

"Cut that down to one 'terrific' and it will do very nicely," said Charlotte. "I think 'terrific' might impress Zuckerman."

"But Charlotte," said Wilbur, "I'm not terrific."

"That doesn't make a particle of difference," replied Charlotte. "People believe almost anything they see in print. Does anybody here know how to spell 'terrific'?"

"I think," said the gander, "it's tee double ee double rr double rr double eye double ff double eye double see see see see see."

"What kind of an acrobat do you think I am?" said Charlotte in disgust. "I would have to have St.Vitus's Dance to weave a word like that into my web."

"Sorry, sorry, sorry," said the gander.

"Thanks," said Charlotte. "The meeting is now adjourned. I have a busy evening ahead of me. I've got to tear my web apart and write 'Terrific'."

Wilbur blushed. "But I'm not terrific, Charlotte. I'm just about average for a pig."

"You're terrific as far as I'm concerned," replied Charlotte, sweetly, "and that's what counts. You're my best friend, and I think you're sensational. Now stop arguing and go get some sleep!

Wilbur: Charlotte, what does a "some pig" do?

Charlotte: This isn't for what you do. It's for what you are. Some pigs might smile a bit. The lifting of the head, nice touch!

Narrator: After a few weeks, the phenomenon of the web wore off. Nobody cared anymore, and what was amazing yesterday was suddenly ordinary again today. It looked like Wilbur might not see snow after all.

Sheep: Excuse me, but why are we here? I mean, yes, barn meeting and so on and so forth. I understand that. But must this concern us? And at such an ungodly hour!

Charlotte: You know, Wilbur's not the only one who could end up being Christmas dinner with an apple in his mouth.

Sheep: Good point. Yes. Carry on, then.

Charlotte: As we have all seen, humans have very short attention spans, and there's just too much time between now and Christmas. Certainly enough time for Zuckerman to find his affection for a pig losing out to his hunger for ham.

Gander: That spider can talk!

Horse: Yeah. What did she say, exactly?

Sheep: She said the farmer might possibly still slaughter the pig. Sorry, old chap, but it is a common fate for your ilk.

Wilbur: I could just bust through the fence again.

Charlotte: No. Once was enough for that. I just have to get the right word written. Something that makes Wilbur so special that Zuckerman will never think about killing him again.

Cow: How about...

Cow: Did you get him?

Cow: Yep. Bull's-eye.

Gussy: How about "terrific, terrific, terrific"?

Charlotte: Good. Much too long, though. I've only got so much web. But one "terrific" might work.

Sheep: It simply isn't true. The pig is not terrific. Look at him! He's absolutely average. If you wish to be truthful, then that is the word you should write. "Average."
