Willy retired from his job and bought a pumpkin patch. He thought that he could make more money from chickens than the previous owner made from pumpkins, so he went to a poultry farm and bought 50 chickens.
’50 is a lot of chickens for that little pumpkin patch,’ commented the proprietor.
‘I am used to big business’ Willy replied.’
A week later Willy was back at the farm.
‘I need another 50 chickens,’ he said.
‘Boy, you are serious about this chicken farming,’ the poultry farmer told him.
‘Oh yes,’ Willy replied. ‘It’ will be Ok if I can just iron out a few problems.’
‘Problems?’, asked the farmer.
‘Yeah,’ replied the Willy, ‘I think I planted that first batch too close together.’
Happy Halloween to one and all, especially PP, who sent this tale to me.
