This reminds me of a southern joke about a farmer who needs to buy a rooster to get his hens to lay again. He borries a rooster from another farmer, who claims it is a very proud rooster and he puts it in with his hens. In the morning he finds his hens very scared looking, feathers torn out and huddled in the corner of the coop, tattered tailfeathers to the wire and the rooster, beatup is ambling around, proudly declaring his conquest. Well, the farmer takes one look at the rooster and says, "boy, you're in terrible shape, I can't be sending you back looking like this, and my poor hens!" The worried farmer takes him out and decides he'll put him in with the sheep for the night and let the poor hens rest. The next morning, the farmer finds his sheep huddled in a corner of the pen, tails to the wire, shocked and appalled, and the rooster more beatup than ever, proudly strutting around the pen as proud as could be. Well, the farmer said to the rooster, "you keep this pace up, you're gonna be dead by the morrow. I'm a fixin' you. You're goin' out in that field over there all by yourself for the night and maybe then you'll get some rest." Well the next morning the farmer came out and went out to the field to check on the rooster he'd borried. From the distance he could see the buzzards circling. Sadly he trudged out to the field and finally, standing over the rooster, tear in his eye, said," See didn't I tell ya if ya didn't slow down, you was gonna end up dead."
The rooster popped open one eye, peered up at the buzzards, and said, "Shhhhh! They're about to land!"
I hope this wasn't too off color, I tried to tell it in a clean way. Its just an old farm joke.
