Everytime I hear someone complain traffic is slow for the day it reminds me of my farming upbringing and how farmers always complain about how terrible ag prices are. This reminds me of a joke.
1.) A farmer and his wife see the doctor as they prepare for their first child.
Farmer: Doctor, I have three things I want my child to have. They are very important to me.
Doctor: I see. What are you expecting, sir.
F: First, I would like a son, doctor.
D: I think we can accomplish that.
F: I really would like my son to have blue eyes.
D: I think we can do that, too.
F: Doctor, could you make my son a farmer?
D: Hmmm. That is a tough one, but I think I can make it happen.
Well, nine months go by and the happy day arrives. Our farmer sits in the waiting room while his child is delivered. Soon the beautiful sound of crying resonates through the air. The doctor rushes into the waiting area.
D: Sir, you are the pround father of a wonderful baby boy!
F: Thank God! Doctor? Does he have blue eyes?
D: Oh, yes sir, he does. The deepest blue eyes I ever saw.
F: Yes! I am so happy, docotor. But, is he a farmer?
D: Ahhhh. Well, let me go back and check.
The doctor leaves and after an uncomfortably long wait the doctor finally returns.
D: Sir, I have no doubt your blue-eyes son is a farmer.
F: How do you know he is a farmer, doctor?
D: Becuase he never stopped crying the entire time I was in there.
And a second farmer joke.
2.) A Farmer's Prayer
Day 1: Dear God, please let corn prices go up so I can sell at a good price and pay my mortgage and other bills.
D2: Corn goes up to $2.50 a bushel.
Dear God, if only you would allow corn to go to $3 a bushel.
D3: Corn is at $3 bu.
Dear God, if only I could get 4 bucks a bu for corn.
D4: Corn is at $4.
God, if only $5.
D5: Corn is at $5.
Lord, if only $7.
D6: Corn is at $7.
D7: Corn drops back to $2 a bu.
Lord, could you let corn go back to $7 so I can sell this time.
