a "Farm Kid" A farmer drove
to a neighbor's farmhouse and knocked on the door.
A boy, about 9, opened the door.
"Is your dad or mom
home?" said the farmer.
"No, they went to town" said the young boy.
"Well, how about your brother, Clifford? Is he here?" asked the farmer.
"No, he went with Mom and Dad" the boy answered.
The farmer stood there
for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to
the other, and mumbling to himself. "I know where all the tools are,
if you want to borrow
one, or I can give Dad a message" said the boy.
"Well," said the farmer
uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad.
It's about your brother
Clifford getting my daughter Marilyn pregnant".
The boy thought for a
moment then answered:
"You’d have to talk to Dad about that, sir. I know that he charges $500
for the bull and $50
for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Clifford."
