A farmer had advertised
A farmer had advertised his farm and was showing it to a prospective buyer.
As they walked along a fence line, the buyer saw beehives and stopped.
He said, “Those hives are pretty close to the road.”
The farmer explained that the bees just make honey and have never stung anyone.
The buyer was dubious about the purchase until he recommended that he be tied naked to a nearby tree overnight.
If he was stung once, he would get the farm for free, but if he wasn’t, he would have to pay the farmer twice as much.
The farmer consented, and the now-naked guy was chained to a tree.
The farmer noticed the man bending over and looking pale the next morning.
“Oh no,” the farmer said.
“Oh no,” the farmer thought,
“He got stung, and now I have to give him the farm!”
As he approached the man, he gently shook him and asked where he had been stung and whether he needed a doctor.
“No, no, I think I’m okay,” the naked guy said.
“Do I have any choice?”
I have to pay you to double for the farm… But doesn’t the calf have a mother?
