On the Lighter Side – 2009
An out-of-towner drove his car into a ditch in a desolated area. Luckily, a local farmer came to help with his big, strong horse named Buddy.
He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, “Pull, Nellie, pull!” Buddy didn’t move.
Then the farmer hollered, “Pull, Buster, pull!” Buddy didn’t respond.
Once more the farmer commanded, “Pull, Coco, pull!” Nothing.
Then the farmer nonchalantly said, “Pull, Buddy, pull!” And the horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch.
The motorist was most appreciative and very curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times.
The farmer said, “Oh, Buddy is blind and if he thought he were the only one pulling, he wouldn’t even try!”
A city slicker moves to the country and decides he’s going to start farming. He goes to the local farmer and says, “Give me 100 baby chickens.” The farmer complies. A week later the man returns and says, “Give me 200 baby chickens.” The farmer complies again. Another week goes by and the man returns and this time he says, “Give me 500 baby chickens.”
“Wow!” the farmer replies. “You must really be doing well.”
“Naw,” said the man with a sigh. “I’m either planting them too deep or too far apart!”
