How many pigs in a poke?

A poke is not a collective noun for pigs. The phrase "pig in a poke" means that something is bought or traded without the buyer knowing its true value. It also refers to someone buying something without inspecting it beforehand.

Unknown because the piglets would be sold in a brown paper bag, so the quantity was a mystery.
