An old farmer


An old farmer decided it was time to get a new rooster for his hens. The
current rooster was still doing an okay job, but he was getting on in years and
the farmer figured getting a new rooster couldn’t hurt. So he buys a new cock
from the local rooster emporium, and turns him loose in the barnyard.

Well, the old rooster sees the young one strutting around and he’s a little
worried. So, they’re trying to replace me, thinks the old rooster- I’ve got to
do something about this! He walks up to the new bird and says, ‘So you’re the
new stud in town? I bet you really think you’re hot stuff don’t you? Well I’m
not ready for the chopping block yet. I’ll bet I’m still the better bird. And to
prove it, I challenge you to a race around that hen house over there. We’ll run
around it ten times and whoever finishes first gets to have all the hens for
himself.’ Well, the young rooster was a proud sort, and he definitely thought he
was more than a match for the old guy. ‘You’re on’, he said, ‘and since I’m so
great, I’ll even give you a head start of half a lap. I’ll still win easy!’

So the two roosters go over to the henhouse to start the race with all the
hens gathering to watch. The race begins and all the hens start cheering the old
rooster on. After the first lap, the old rooster is still maintaining his lead.
After the second lap, the old guy’s lead has slipped a little but he’s still
hanging in there. Unfortunately, the old rooster’s lead continues to slip each
time around, and by the fifth lap he’s just barely in front of the young fell.

By now the farmer has heard the commotion. He runs into the house, gets his
shotgun, and runs into the barnyard figuring a fox or something is after his
chickens. When he gets there, he sees the two roosters running around the
henhouse, with the old rooster still slightly in the lead. He immediately takes
his shotgun, aims, fires, and blows the young rooster away.

As he walks away slowly, he says to himself…..

‘Damn, that’s the third gay rooster I’ve bought this month.’
