|Funny story about the triumph of youthful enthusiasm over the wisdom of age|
An old man from Mississippi was sitting on his front porch watching the sun rise over the river. He sees the neighbour's kid walk by carrying something big under his arm. He yells out:"Hey boy, whatcha got there?"
The Boy yelled back "Roll of chicken wire Sir."
The Old man asked :"Whatcha gonna do with that boy?"
"Gonna catch me some chickens."
The Old man yells "You damn fool, you can't catch no chickens with chicken
The boy just laughs and keeps walking. That evening at sunset the boy comes walking by and to the old man's surprise he is dragging behind him the chicken wire with about 30 chickens caught in it. At the same time next morning the old man is out watching the sun rise and he sees the boy walk by carrying something round in his hand.
The Old man
yells out "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"
The boy just laughs and keeps on walking. That night around sunset the boy comes by and to the old man's amazement he is trailing the unrolled roll of duck tape behind him with about 35 ducks caught in it.
The same time the next morning the old man sees the boy walking by
carrying what looks like a long reed with something fuzzy on the end
"Wait up boy, I'll get m' hat."
