An old farmer dropped his truck off at the mechanic for a tune-up. Told it would take a few hours, he decided to walk home. On the way he bought a bucket and a gallon of paint at the hardware store. The farmer stopped at the feed store next and picked up two live chickens and a goose. When he got outside, he wondered how to carry all of his purchases.
While the farmer was scratching his head, a little old lady approached and said, “I’m lost, mister. Can you tell me how to get to Elm Street?”
“My place is near that street,” the farmer replied. “I’d walk you there, but I can’t carry all this stuff.”
