Rocky, The Horse
A visitor from another city drove his car into a ditch in a desolated area. Luckily, a local farmer came to help with his big strong horse named Rocky.
He hitched Rocky up to the car and yelled, “Pull, Barney, pull!” Rocky didn’t move.
Then the farmer hollered, “Pull, Sally, pull!” Rocky didn’t respond.
Once more the farmer commanded, “Pull, Gypsy, pull!” Nothing.
Then the farmer nonchalantly said, “Pull, Rocky, 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 names three times.
The farmer said, “Oh, Rocky is blind and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn’t even try!”
The Death of my Wife
This farmer had a wife who nagged him all the time. One day while he was outside plowing the field, she came out and started nagging him. While she was doing this, the mule kicked her and she died. At the funeral, the ladies came up and talked to the farmer. The farmer nodded his head “yes”. The men came up and talked to him and the farmer nodded his head “no”. Well this other man wondered why he nodded his head “yes” to the ladies and “no” to the men. Then, he went up to the farmer and asked him why. The farmer replied, “Well, when the ladies came up, they told me ‘how pretty my wife’s dress was and how pretty she looked.’ When the men came up, they asked, ‘That mule for sale?'”
Agriculture Student Vs Farmer
An agriculture student said to a farmer: “Your methods are too old fashioned. I won’t be surprised if this tree will give you less than twenty pounds of apples.”
“I won’t be surprised either,” said the farmer, “this is an orange tree”.
