A rather eccentric farmer was out walking his prize rooster one day,
when it managed to get itself stuck in a cattle grid! The farmer tried
to pull it free, but it was stuck fast.
Standing there scratching his head wondering what to do, this city boy
in his flash executive saloon pulls up, and asks what the problem is. So
the farmer explains that the rooster is stuck. The man gets out of his
car and also has a go at pulling the rooster free. All it says is
Squaaaaark! and does not budge. No worries says our man, "I have just
the thing!". He opens the boot and produces a tow rope. Ties it round
the rooster and attaches the other end of the rope to his car. He starts
up, edges away and takes up the slack. As he applies a bit of power the
rooster says Squaaaaark, squaaark, but still does not budge. So he revs
it harder, and pulls some more. Squaark squaark squaaaark! The man
floors the throttle, spins the wheels and goes full out for it. Still no
joy. The rooster is not unexpectedly looking a bit put out by now! So
the apologies for not being able to help out, and goes about his way -
in the process even forgetting to take his tow rope.
Shortly after, the farmer sees his neighbour Ned walking down the road
with his donkey. Ned, without saying much, appraises the situation. He
picks up the end of the rope and ties it round the donkey's dangly bits!
Quick slap on the donkeys butt, it trots off, pulls the rope tight, and
squaaaaaark, Pop! The rooster is free!
The farmer looks on in amazement. He tells Ned that a chap tried to pull
the rooster out using his powerful car and even that did not work.
Ned says, "Aye, a flash car won't always pull the birds, but if you are
hung like a donkey it works every time!"
