Joke: Man Comes into the Bar and Sees a Farmer Getting Drunk on a Beautiful Day
An image may be worth a thousand words, but if those words lack in context, they can get interpreted in ways we would rather avoid, as a farmer found out in today’s joke of the day.
Peter went to buy some milk from the farmer, Carl, down the road. When Peter passed by the town's bar, he found Carl getting drunk.
“It's such a beautiful day, why are you sitting here getting drunk?” Peter asked. Demotivated and with a bottle of brandy in one hand, Carl replied, “Some things just can’t be explained.”
Concerned, Peter sat down next to Carl. “So, what happened that’s so horrible?” he asked. Carl let out a sigh and explained, “Well, today I was sitting by my cow milking her. Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her left leg and kicked over the bucket.”
“Oh I see,” Peter said and added, “but luckily, that’s not so bad right?” Carl took a swig of brandy and noted, “Some things just can’t be explained.”
Curious about what else happened, Peter urged the farmer to continue. “So, what happened next?” he asked.
“I took her left leg and tied it to the post on the left,” Carl explained. “Then I sat back down and continued to milk her. Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her right leg and kicked over the bucket.”
Peter shook his head at the uncooperative cow and asked, “And then what happened?”
Carl took another sip of brandy before he replied, “I took her right leg this time and tied it to the post on the right. I sat back down and began milking her again. Just as I got the bucket about full, the stupid cow knocked over the bucket with her tail.”
Peter started understanding the farmer’s need for a drink as he added, “Some things just can’t be explained.”
“So, what did you do?” Peter asked to which Carl replied, “Well, I didn't have any more rope, so I took off my belt and tied her tail to the rafter. At that moment, my pants fell down, and my wife walked in.”
In a related joke of the day, a man learned a valuable lesson after he said things during the heat of an argument with his wife she made sure he later regretted.
