Prior to retiring and selling off his land, a farmer needed to get rid of all the animals he owned, so he decided to call on every house in his village. At houses where the man was the boss, he gave a horse; at houses where the woman was the boss, he gave a chicken.
Approaching one cottage, he saw a couple gardening and called out: “Who’s the boss around here?”
“I am,” said the man. So the farmer said: “I have a black horse and a brown horse. Which one would you like?”
The man thought for a minute and said: “The black one.”
“No, no, get the brown one,” said his wife.
The farmer said: “Here’s your chicken.”
A group of friends who went hunting separated into pairs for the day. That night, one hunter returned alone, staggering under the weight of a huge buck.
“Where’s Harry?” asked another hunter.
“He fainted a couple kilometres up the trail.”
Harry’s partner answered: “You left him lying there alone and carried the deer back?”
“It was a tough decision,” said the hunter. “But I figured no one is going to steal Harry.”
A balding man went into a barber’s shop and asked how much it would be for a haircut.
“Twenty-five dollars,” said the barber.
“Twenty-five dollars, that’s crazy!” exclaimed the man. “I’ve hardly got any hair. How can it be that expensive?”
The barber explained: “It’s $5 for the actual cut and $20 for the search fee.”
