Roger the Rooster
This farmer has about 200 hens, but no rooster, and he wants chicks. So, he goes down the road to the next farmer and asks if he has a rooster that he would sell. The other farmer says,
"Yeah, I've got this great rooster, named Roger. He'll service every chicken you got, no problem."
Well, Roger the rooster costs a lot of money, but the farmer decides he'd be worth it. So, he buys him.
The farmer takes Roger home and sets him down in the barnyard, first, giving the rooster a pep talk.
I want you to pace yourself now. You've got a lot of chickens to service here, and you cost me a lot of money. Consequently, I'll need you to do a good job. So, take your time and have some fun," the farmer said, with a chuckle.
Roger seemed to understand, so the farmer pointed toward the Hen house and Roger took off like a shot.
WHAM! Roger nails every hen in the hen house three or four times, and the farmer is really shocked.
After that the farmer hears a commotion in the duck pen, sure enough, Roger is in there.
Later, the farmer sees Roger after a flock of geese, down by the lake. Once again - WHAM! He gets all the geese.
By sunset he sees Roger out in the fields chasing quail and pheasants. The farmer is distraught and worried that his expensive rooster won't even last 24 hours. Sure enough, the farmer wakens the next morning only to find Roger on his back, stone cold in the middle of the yard. Buzzards are circling overhead.
The farmer, saddened by the loss of such a colorful and expensive animal, shakes his head and says, "Oh, Roger, I told you to pace yourself. I tried to get you to slow down, now look what you've done to yourself."
Roger opens one eye, nods toward the buzzards circling in the sky and says, "Shhh, they're getting closer"
