Farmer Garge lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day.
So one day Farmer Garge called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."
"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.
"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
So the next day he had the county workers go out and erected a sign that said:
"SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING"
So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign:
"SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY"
The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign."
Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer Garge a call. "How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?"
"Oh,I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got
to go. I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.
So the sheriff drove out to Farmer Garge's house, and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign. It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood: "NUDIST COLONY: GO SLOW AND WATCH OUT FOR THE CHICKS"
