Once there was a city boy who wanted to move to the country, so he
headed out to a farm to buy some animals. "I'll take one of these,"
he said to the farmer. "What is it?" "Well, to me it's a cock, but to you
it's a rooster." said the farmer. "I'll take one of these, too," said the
city boy. "What is it?" "Well, to me it's a pullet, but to you it's a
chicken." replied the farmer. "Okay," said the city boy. "And I'll take
one of those, too, if you'll tell me what it is." "To me it's an ass, but
to you it's a mule," explained the farmer, "and when that ass gets stubborn,
it sits down and you have to scratch its belly to get it moving again."
So the city boy set off down the road with all his new purchases. He
was doing fine till a pretty girl drove by, at which point the ass sat down
and refused to budge. Seeing he was having some trouble, the girl backed
up and asked if there was anything she could do to help.
"Actually, yes," said the city boy. "Will you hold my cock and pullet
while I scratch my ass?"
