On the Farm : Puddle Crossing
Traveling down a remote country road one day, a motorist came to a stop
in front of a giant puddle covering the entire road. He noticed a farmer
leaning on a fence, contemplating the puddle. "Hey mister, do you think
it's safe to cross?" he yelled.
"Oh, I reckon so." The farmer replied.
The man drove on into the puddle, where his car was immediately
swallowed up. The puddle was so deep he had to escape through the window
and swim back to the edge. When he climbed out he was furious with the
farmer. "I thought you said it was safe to cross!"
The farmer stood back and scratched his head. "Well, heck, it only came
up chest-high on the ducks!"
