One day, farmer Jones was in town picking up supplies
for his farm. He stopped by the hardware store and
picked up a bucket and an anvil. Then, he stopped by
the livestock dealer to buy a couple of chickens and a
goose. However, he now had a problem: how to carry
all of his purchases home.
The livestock dealer said, "Why don't you put the
anvil in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand,
put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in
your other hand?"
"Hey, thanks!" the farmer said, and off he went.
While walking he met a little old lady who told him
she was lost. She asked, "Can you tell me how to get
to 1515 Mockingbird Lane?"
The farmer said, "Well, as a matter of fact, I live
at 1616 Mockingbird Lane. Let's take my short cut
and go down this alley.? We'll be there in no time.
The little old lady said, "I am a lonely widow
without a husband to defend me. How do I know that
when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against
the wall, pull up my skirt, and ravish me?"
The farmer said, "Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a
bucket, an anvil, two chickens, and a goose. How in
the world could I possibly hold you up against the
wall and do that?" The lady said, "Set the goose down,
cover him with the bucket, put the anvil on top of the bucket,
and I'll hold the chickens."
