The smart jackaroo

An Australian jackaroo was asked to take an American on a guided tour of a stud property out west.

They came to the prime Hereford cattle first. “Very nice animals but we grow them bigger and better where I come from”, said the Yank.

Next came the prize winning Merino sheep. “Mighty fine animals, says the yank “but we grow them bigger and better where I come from”.

And so the story stays the same for the pigs and horses and all the other prize winning animals.

As they were heading home around dusk, a big red kangaroo hopped across the road. “What is that!” said the yank in amazement.
