Hey Kid! Where are You Going?

There was a farmer, sitting on the front porch of his house this one hot summer day, when this kid comes walking down the road carrying a big bundle of wire.

“Hey kid!” the farmer shouts. “Where ya goin’ with that wire?”

“Well,” the kid drawls, “this ain’t just any ol’ wire, this-here’s chicken wire — I’m fixin’ to catch me some CHICKENS!”

“You can’t catch chickens with chicken wire.”

“Sure I can!” the kid exclaims, and takes off down the road.

At the end of the day, sure enough, he’s got a whole mess o’ chickens caught in his chicken wire!

Our Farmer’s sitting on his porch the next day, finishing breakfast, and the same kid comes walking down the lane, carrying a big roll of tape.

“Hey kid!” the farmer yells. “Where ya goin’ with that tape?”

“Well, this-here ain’t just any ol’ tape, this here’s duck tape — I’m fixin’ to catch me some DUCKS!”

“You can’t catch ducks with duck tape!” the farmer yells.

“Sure I can!” the kid replies, and takes off down the road.

He returns at twilight, and again, the farmer can’t believe his eyes. The kid had a whole bunch of ducks — all wrapped up tightly in tape!

The following day the farmer’s sitting on his front porch again, and the same kid comes walking down the road, carrying a stick.

“Hey kid!” the farmer mocks. “Where ya goin’ with that stick?”

“Well, this-here ain’t just any old stick, this here’s a pussy willow.”

“Hang on,” the farmer says, “’til I go fetch my hat!”
