Sight Seeing

A farmer, who went to the big city to see the sights, asked a hotel clerk about the time of meals.

Breakfast is served from 7 to 11, dinner from 12 to 3 and supper from 6 to 8, explained the clerk.

'Look here', said the farmer in surprise, 'When am i going to get time to see the city?'

...now That's high finance...

Dem' smart city folk<br />
A man from the city is out plowing his field and gets his tractor stuck in the wet ground.<br />
<br />
A farmer driving by stops his truck and walks to the fence to call over the city feller. You need a mule to plow such wet ground he says.<br />
<br />
"Where can I buy one?" he is asked.<br />
<br />
Well, I just happened to have one for 100 dollars he says.<br />
<br />
"I'll take him," says the other man as he counts out the money.<br />
<br />
I can't bring him over today. I don't work on Sunday morrow OK?<br />
<br />
"Sure."<br />
<br />
The next day the truck pulls up and the old farmer gets out. He says, "sorry, bad news."<br />
<br />
I went out after breakfeast and the mule was dead.<br />
<br />
The city feller says just give me my money back then.<br />
<br />
"Can't, spent it already!"<br />
<br />
"Well... unload the mule then."<br />
<br />
"What ya gonna do with him?"<br />
<br />
"Raffle him off!"<br />
<br />
"Naw, ya cant raffle off a dead mule!"<br />
<br />
"Just watch me us! City fellers know a few tricks."<br />
<br />
One month goes by and the city feller and farmer run into each other at the barber shop.<br />
<br />
"What did ya do with that dead mule?"<br />
<br />
"Raffled him off, sold 100 tickets at two dollars each and made 98 dollars profit."<br />
<br />
"Didn't anyone complain?" <br />
<br />
"Just one guy so I gave him his two dollars back!"...DD
