The Farmer

A young man graduated from University of Arkansas with a degreein journalism. His first assignment for the newspaper who hired himwas to write a human interest story. Being from Arkansas, he wentback to the country to do his research. He went to an old farmershouse way back in the hills, introduced himself to the farmer andproceeded to explain to him why he was there. The young manasked, Has anything ever happened around here that made youhappy?

The farmer thought for a minute and said, Yep! One time one ofmy neighbors sheep got lost. We formed a posse and found it. Weall screwed it and took it back home.

I cant print that! the young man exclaimed.

Can you think ofanything else that happened that made you or a lot of other peoplehappy?

After another moment, the farmer said, Yeah, one time myneighbors daughter, a good looking girl, got lost. We formed a bigposse that time and found her. After we all screwed her, we tookher back home.

Again, the young man said I cant print that either. Has anythingever happened around here that made you sad?

The old farmer dropped his head as if he were ashamed and after afew seconds looked up timidly at the young man and said, I gotlost once.
