One day, farmer Jones was in town picking up supplies for his farm. He stopped by the hardware store and picked up a bucket and an anvil, then stopped by the livestock dealer to buy a couple of chickens and a goose.
Now he had a problem: How to carry all of his purchases home.
The livestock dealer suggested, "Why don't you put the anvil in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?"
The farmer tried it. "Hey, that works!" he said. "Thanks!" and off he went.
While walking home, he met a very attractive fair young lady. "I'm lost," she said. "Can you tell me how to get to 132 S. Bedford Lane?"
"What a coincidence," the farmer said, "I'm going to visit my sister at 153 Bedford Lane. Follow me. I'll show you how to get there."
They walked for a little while before they came to an alley.
"Let's take a short cut down this alley," the farmer suggested. "We'll save half the time to get there."
The fair young lady said, "How do I know that when we get in to the alley, you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt and take unfair advantage of me?"
The farmer laughed, "I am carrying a bucket, an anvil, 2 chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?"
"Easy, silly!" the young lady said, "Set the goose down, put the bucket over the goose, put the anvil on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens!"
