    Muskogee Ok.
    A farmer stopped by the local mechanic shop to have his truck fixed.

    They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live far and would
    just walk home.

    On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a
    gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of
    chickens and a goose.

    However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to carry his
    entire purchases home.

    While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told
    him she was lost. She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird

    The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house
    I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.'

    The old lady suggested, 'Why don't you put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry
    the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your
    other hand?

    "Why thank you very much,' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home.

    On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley. We'll be there in no time.

    The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, I am a lonely widow
    without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you
    won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and have your way with me?'

    The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint,
    two chickens, and a goose.
    How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?'

    The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the
    paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.
