Yiddish: If you put a shtreimel on a pig, would it make him a rabbi?

SOURCE: Furman, Yidishe Shprikhverter un Rednsartn. A shtreimel is a fur-trimmed hat traditionally worn by rabbis and Hasidic Jews on the Sabbath and holidays. And of course the pig is ritually unclean.

טו אָן אַ חזיר אַ שטרײַמל, וועט ער ווערן רבֿ?

Tu on a khazer a shtrayml, vet er vern rov?
