Hold the chickens

One day, farmer Williams was in town picking up supplies for his farm.

He stopped at 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 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 123 Township Road?”

The farmer said: “Well, as a matter of fact, I live at 132 Township Road. Let’s take my shortcut and go down this alley; we’ll be there in no time.”

The little old lady said: “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 am 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….”
