My Father Wouldn't Like It
A clergyman is walking down a country lane and sees a young farmer
struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. "You
look hot, my son," said the cleric. "Why don't you rest a moment, and
I'll give you a hand."
"No thanks," said the young man, "my father wouldn't like it."
"Don't be silly," the minister replied. "Everyone is entitled to a break.
Come and have a drink of water."
Again the young man protested that his father would be upset.
Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a
real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him
a piece of my mind!"
"Well," replied the young farmer, "he's under the hay."
