Another joke to start the week:
After three crop failures in a row, farmer Jones could not pay his loan to the bank. “Give me one more chance,” he pleaded. “Don’t take my farm. We’ll be broke and homeless.”
The bank manager comes up with an idea. “Okay, one more chance, but not with crops. No one fails at pig farming so we’ll finance the purchase of five sows to start you off.”
Your neighbor down the road has a boar and you’ll have to take your sows to him so the boar can service them. In a few months, you should have a bunch of piglets ready for the market.”
When enough time has passed, they go back to the boar’s pen and load five happy sows into the pickup. Farmer Jones asks, “What if it didn’t take?”
“That never happens with my boar,” replies the neighbor.
“But how can I tell for sure?”
“Look, observe your sows tomorrow morning. If they’re rolling in the mud, it took. If they’re on the grass, call me.”
The following morning, farmer Jones observes his sows strolling on the grass. He calls his neighbor who instructs him to bring them back to his place. Farmer Jones rounds them up, loads them into his pickup and takes them to the boar’s pen where the whole process is repeated.
Unlucky farmer Jones has to take them back four times. On the fifth morning, he is so worried, he can’t look. He stalls for half an hour then asks his wife to look. “I hope they are not on the grass, dear.”
“Well, they are not,” says the wife.
“Finally, they’re rolling in the mud!” he exclaims.
“Well, what are those fool sows doing then?”
The wife answers, “Four are trying to climb into the pickup. The fifth has managed to climb into the cab and is trying to honk the horn!!”
Have a wonderful week!
