Daily Joke: A Farmer Was Struggling with the Weather

They say that it is always greener on the other side of the fence, but this particular farmer had his own vision about the fortune (or the lack of) of his neighbor.

During a very difficult winter, there was too much snow falling and falling that the government relief agency had to intervene in order to save the businesses of many farmers in the area.

One day, a government worker paid a visit to an affected farmer and as a way to start a conversation, he told the farmer “It must have been terrible. All that snow,” never expecting the farmer’s answer.

“It could have been worse,” replied the man with resignation, before adding, “my neighbor had more snow than me,” leaving the government worker thinking for a few seconds. “How’s that?” the worker finally asked, to which the man replied:

“More land.”



This second #jokeoftheday, also brought to you from Stars at 60, also features government workers, two of them, to be more precise, this time employees of the city council.

The two-people work team had very specific instructions to fulfill. One had to dig until leaving a deep hole in the ground, while the other had to keep walking behind with piles of dirt to fill the holes as the first man continued digging others.


The two men were very dedicated to their assigned tasks, and almost as soon as the first man had finished digging another hole, the second one filled it with dirt completely.

The entire thing made a passerby very curious, and he stopped for a long time to study the two city workers in an attempt to understand what they were doing. But since he couldn’t figure it out in the end, he proceeded to ask them.


“I appreciate how hard you work, but what are you doing? You dig a hole and your partner comes behind you and fills it up again!” the common citizen questioned the hole digger, who answered:

“Oh yeah, it must look funny, but the guy who plants the trees is sick today.”


We bet that this regular tax-payer returned home very disappointed about having learned how the city government wasted its resources on such meaningless activities, but at least we could get a good laugh out of it.

And if you are still in need of another laugh to help you go through another day, click here to read a third joke, about a man who runs into an old friend after many years without hearing from him.
