Daily Joke: A Farmer Thought He Overpaid for a Rooster

This story about an overachieving rooster is bound to make you chuckle. Randy sure is determined; we'll give him that. 

A farmer has 200 hens but no rooster. Because he wants chicks, the farmer goes down the road to the neighboring farm and asks if there is a rooster for sale.

The other farmer says, “Yeah, I’ve got this great rooster named Randy. He’ll service every chicken you got, no problem.”

Well, Randy, the rooster costs a lot of money, but the farmer decides he’d be worth it. So, he buys Randy. He takes him back home and gives Randy a pep talk:

“Randy, I want you to pace yourself now. You’ve got many chickens to service here, and you cost me a lot of money. Consequently, I’ll need you to do a good job. So, take your time and have some fun.”

Randy seems to understand, so the farmer points toward the hen house. The rooster takes off like a shot and proves to the farmer that he lives up to his name.

Randy does exactly like the farmer ordered and "attends" to every hen in the hen house – three or four times. The farmer is shocked but equally impressed.

After that, the farmer hears a commotion in the duck pen. Sure enough, Randy is in there. Later, the farmer sees Randy after a flock of geese down by the lake.

True to form, Randy gets all the geese. Multiple times. By sunset, the farmer sees Randy out in the fields chasing quail and pheasants.

The farmer is distraught – worried that his expensive rooster won’t even last 24 hours. He cannot afford to purchase another rooster at that price. 

Sure enough, the farmer goes to bed and wakes up the next day to find Randy dead as a doorknob in the middle of the yard. Buzzards are circling overhead.

The farmer, saddened by the loss of such a colorful – and expensive – animal, shakes his head and says: 

“Oh, Randy, I told you to pace yourself. I tried to get you to slow down, now look what you’ve done to yourself.”

Randy, seemingly not ready to go to the light just yet, opens one eye. He nods toward the buzzards circling in the sky and says: "Shhh, they’re getting closer."

The farmer notices some flies buzzing around, annoying the officer. The policeman is shooing flies more than he's writing.

The farmer says, "I see you're being bothered by those circle flies."

The policeman says, "If that's what you call them, yes, they are somewhat annoying."

The farmer says, "Yeah, we call them that because we see them circling the rear ends of horses."

The policeman says, "Hmmm. Did you just call me a horse's ass?"

The farmer says, "Oh, no, sir, officer. I have way too much respect for those who serve in law enforcement ever to say such a thing."

The policeman says, "Well, that's a good thing, then."

The farmer adds, "But it sure is hard to fool those circle flies."
