Daily Joke: Farmer John Lived on a Quiet Rural Highway

Farmer John lived a quiet life for a while until constant road users disrupted it. The sheriff of the town could not help him, so he took matters into his own hands. 

Farmer John enjoyed the rural setting of his life, filled with serenity. However, there was a turn of events when the road to his farm and home became busy.

The traffic became constant and an everyday thing. Soon enough, John's chickens began to die in droves because the vehicles tended to run them down.

Farmer John lost a lot of chicken day in day out. He decided he had enough of losing his chickens daily, so he put a call through to the sheriff's office.

He and asked the sheriff to do something about the road users that constantly caused the death of chickens. The sheriff listened to his complaints and promised to do something about it.

The next day, the officer sent over some county officers to the road and asked them to erect a sign that reads "SLOW--SCHOOL CROSSING."

This seemed to be the perfect way to control road users until three days later. John once again contacted the sheriff, letting him know it seemed like the sign made the drivers even go faster.

The officer once again beckoned on the workers and told them to change the sign on John's farm way. The poster was redesigned and painted with the words, "SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY."

This did not solve the problem either, and the drivers sped two times faster than they earlier did. Farmer John had no other option than to keep calling the sheriff on the issue.

Then one day, he informed the sheriff that he would find a solution on his own. The officer was already tired of the contact calls, so he let the farmer have his way. 

The following three weeks went by without the sheriff receiving any call from John, and he became curious. He then called the farmer to find out how things went.

John had positive news as he noted that his new sign put some order on the road, and his chickens haven't died since then. The sheriff hung up and decided to go and see for himself.

He also got excited, thinking he could use the farmer's method to control traffic. When he got to the road, his jaw dropped as he saw the sign that read: "NUDIST COLONY. GO SLOW AND WATCH OUT FOR THE CHICKS"
