Friday Funny: The Farmer and the Pond Crashers

Farmer and BasketThe Crafty Farmer and the Pond Crashing Skinny-Dippers

A well seasoned farmer owned a large farm in the Florida Panhandle.  After years of dedicated hard work on his land, he decided to rent out most of the farm and enjoy his retirement years.  Around his home he developed a huge garden that included a really nice fish pond that also provided his grand kids with a wonderful swimming hole.  He planted blueberries, satsumas, grapes, blackberries and a large vegetable garden.  The pond was fixed up nice too, with a dock, a slide, picnic tables, and some shade trees.

One summer evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn’t been there for a few days to look it over.  On his way out the door he grabbed a five-gallon bucket so he could pick some blackberries while he was out.

As he neared the pond, the farmer heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.  As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of  young women skinny-dipping in his pond.  He shouted “hello” to make the women aware of his presence and they immediately headed to the deep end.  One of the women shouted to him,  “we’re not coming out until you leave!”

Without missing a beat, the crafty farmer shouted,  “I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim or make you get out of the pond naked.”  Holding the bucket up he said,  “I’m just here to feed the alligator.”

With age we may slow down physically, but the mind still races on!
