A Farmer Was Taking Three Of His Donkeys.
A farmer was taking three of his donkeys to the market to sell them.
On the way, he saw a river and decided to have a dip.
Since he had only two ropes to tie the donkeys to a tree, he looked around, wondering how to tie the third one.
He saw a sage and sought his help if he could give him a rope to tie the third donkey.
The sage didn’t have a rope, but he had a suggestion.
He told the farmer, “Let the third donkey see you tying the other two donkeys to a tree. Then you pretend to tie this one also.”
The farmer did as he was told and went for a dip in the river.
Coming back, he thanked the sage and saw that the donkeys stood exactly at the same spot where he had left them.
He untied the two donkeys and patted the third one to start moving.
After going a little distance, imagine his surprise when the third donkey stood still at the same spot.
Cajoling, kicking, or talking didn’t help with the donkey, refusing to move from the spot.
The farmer went back to sage, who told him, “Untie the third donkey.”
“But,” protested the farmer, “I have not tied him.”
The sage asked, “You know. But does the donkey know that?”
Sure enough, the farmer went back and pretended to untie the donkey.
The donkey immediately moved as though released and walked over to join the other two donkeys.
Moral of the story:
We are all, also tied up by too many imaginary ropes… which are really non-existent.
A farmer who had a herd of pigs.
There was a farmer who had a herd of pigs.
One day someone went to the farm and asked the farmer, “What do you use to feed your pigs?”
“Well, I give them acorn, corn, and things like that. Why?”
“Because I’m from the Animals Protection Association and I think you shouldn’t feed them the way you should, they shouldn’t eat waste.”
Then he fined the farmer.
A few days later, another person arrived and asked the same question.
The farmer replied, “Well, I feed them very well. I give them salmon, caviar, shrimp, steak… why?
“Because I’m from the United Nations Organization and I think it’s unfair that you feed your pigs like that when there are people dying with nothing to eat.”
And he fined the farmer.
Finally, another man came in and asked just the same question.
The hesitant farmer answered after a thoughtful few minutes: “Well, I give five dollars to each pig so they can buy whatever they want.”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
