  • Oldies

    A farmer stopped by the local mechanic shop to have his truck fixed.
    They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live far and
    would just walk home.
    On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and
    a gallon of paint.
    He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and
    a goose.
    However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to
    carry all of his purchases home.
    While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady
    who told him she was lost.
    She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?'
    The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to
    that house. I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.'
    The old lady suggested, 'Put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the
    bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in
    your other hand.'
    'Why thank you very much.' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home..
    On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley.
    We'll be there in no time.'

    The little old lady looked him over cautiously then 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
    have your way with me?'

    The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of
    paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold
    you up against the wall and do that?'

    The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket,
    put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.'
