Kenny The Rooster
This farmer had about 200 chickens but no rooster so he goes down the
road to the next farmer and asks if he has a rooster that he would sell.
The other farmer says, "Yeah, I've got this great rooster named Kenny.
He'll service every chicken you've got, no problem."
Well, Kenny the rooster costs a lot of money, but the farmer decides
he'd be worth it. So he buys Kenny. The farmer takes Kenny home and
sets him down in the barnyard, and begins giving the rooster a pep talk.
"I want you to pace yourself now. You've got a lot of 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," the farmer said with a chuckle.
Kenny seemed to understand, so the farmer pointed toward the henhouse
and Kenny took off like a shot.
WHAM! Kenny nails every hen in the hen house three or four times, and
the farmer is really shocked. After that, the farmer hears a commotion
in the duck pen. Sure enough, Kenny is in there. Later, the farmer
sees Kenny after a flock of geese, down by the lake. Once again --
WHAM! He gets all the geese. By sunset, he sees Kenny out in the fields
chasing quails and pheasants.
The farmer is distraught and worried that his expensive rooster won't
even last 24 hours.
Sure enough, the farmer goes to bed and wakes up the next day, to find
Kenny on his back, stone cold 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, Kenny, I told you
to pace yourself. I tried to get you to slow down, now look what you've
done to yourself."
Kenny opens one eye, nods toward the buzzards circling in the sky and
says, "Shhh, they're getting closer."
