Little Johnny on the Farm

Little 10-year-old Johnny goes for a long weekend with his uncle, a wealthy farm owner. One evening, as Uncle John and his wife are entertaining guests with cocktails, they are interrupted by an out-of-breath Johnny who shouts out, “Uncle John! Come Quick! The bull is fucking the cow!”

Uncle John, highly embarrassed, takes young Johnny aside, and explains that a certain amount of decorum is required. “You should have said, ‘The bull is surprising the cow’- not some filth picked up in the playground,” he says. A few days later, Johnny comes in again as his aunt and uncle are entertaining. “Uncle John! The bull is surprising the cows!”

The adults share a knowing grin. Uncle John says, “Thank you Johnny, but surely you meant to say the cow, not cows. A bull cannot ‘surprise’ more than one cow at a time, you know…” “Yes, he can!” replies his obstinate nephew. “He’s fucking the horse!”
