The Farmer’s Cock August 21, 2011

Once upon a time, a farmer had a cock . . .

The farmer’s cock, a randy rooster, ruled the roost.

He serviced the chickens, the ducks, the geese, and even made an occasional play for the four-legged inhabitants on the farm.

The farmer admonished the rooster to stop all that cock-a-doodle doing  before the cock wore itself out and withered away to nothing.

The randy rooster refused to listen.

He continued cock-a-doodle doing from sunrise to sunset.

One day, the farmer came upon the rooster lying face up in the middle of the farm yard . . . dead.

The farmer shook his head at the withered cock, “See!  I knew you would wear yourself out with all that bandying about and cock-a-doodle doing!”

The cock cocked open one eye, pointed at the sky, and whispered, “Shhh . . . buzzards!”

No rules.  Just write!

OK, that is definitely not going to fit in our kitchen!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

It’s 7-8 feet tall and belongs in a yard . . . or barnyard. 😀

This one’s not in your usual style!

Love the artwork. Fabulous.

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

This has been a favorite joke of mine since my teens. 😀

I definitely recommend a look around his website (link above). Very cool yard sculptures.

Going over there now.

LOL 🙂

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Thanks, PiP! I love this joke. 😀

4. misswhiplash - August 21, 2011

I loved that..it really made me giggle and I loved the cock in the picture.
thank you for putting a smile on my face. Tilly is right it is not your usual style but sometimes it is good to deviate a bit!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Thanks, MissWhipLash!

Being predictable and consistent with past practice is rarely my aim these days. 😀

5. SidevieW - August 21, 2011

lol!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

That’s what I say! 😆

6. ceceliafutch - August 21, 2011

LOL!!!! Not what I expected from you . . . which made it even funnier!!!! Loved it. 😀

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Thanks, Cecelia. Glad you enjoyed! I figured the title would warn away the “faint at heart.” 😛

7. Patricia - August 21, 2011

Too funny!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Glad you enjoyed. I had a blast writing it up. 😀

8. CMSmith - August 21, 2011

It took me a second. Good one.

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

I think that’s what I always loved about it . . . the surprise ending. 😀

9. kateshrewsday - August 21, 2011

Well that title was a show stopper, Nancy, and the picture added to the festive spirit 😀 Lovely story.

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Thanks, Kate. I heard a much raunchier version of this joke in my teens ~ one that relied heavily on a certain expletive starting with the letter “F.”

I had a blast typing up this tamer version today, toning it down with gentle euphemisms like cock-a-doodle doing. 😛

10. Judith - August 21, 2011

Great picture and laughter to start my day. Thanks.

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Yaa! Glad you enjoyed, Judith. Making people laugh is one of my favorite things to do! 😀

11. SuziCate - August 21, 2011

Lol, yes this is not as raunchy as the version I heard years ago. Whenever I hear cock-a-doodle-do, it always takes me back to first grade when we did that song and everyone wanted to be the rooster to get to sing cock-a-doodle-do. Of course, this was long before I realized I couldn’t sing!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

You probably heard the version I heard . . . completely inappropriate for SLTW! 😳

12. Samyak - August 21, 2011

awsome! took me a while. now i cannt stop laughing!!,
thanks for sharing,
Samyak

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Yay! Delayed reactions are the best ~ when dawning recognition gives way to laughter. 😀

13. eof737 - August 21, 2011

What a hysterical story… only you can tell this one well. 😆

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

I had tons of FUN writing this today . . . trying to create a clean enough version to share on SLTW.

I have a few other “off color” jokes which I’d love to share ~ they will require even more verbal massage before posting.

That, of course, is what makes writing such a blast:

Hmm . . . how can I say this with the greatest impact and the least offense?

14. barb19 - August 21, 2011

Thanks for the belly laugh Nancy – you gave me a good start to the day!

nrhatch - August 21, 2011

Belly laughs are the best way to start the day! Have a marvelous Monday, Barb.

15. earlybird - August 22, 2011

Hahaha!

nrhatch - August 22, 2011

Randy the randy rooster . . . 😉

16. andalibmarks - August 22, 2011

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!
Man, you gotta love the randiness…
Horny little devil!
*#*

nrhatch - August 22, 2011

I just got an image of the SNL skit “making copies” and can hear the copy guy saying . . .

Randy . . .
Randy the rooster . . .
Randy the rooster’s ruling the roost!

Cock-a-doodle doo . . . 😎

17. Naomi - August 22, 2011

LOL! Insatiable bird!

nrhatch - August 22, 2011

I wonder if this is why Cindy’s resident rooster crows at all hours of the day and night? 😉

18. enermazing - August 23, 2011

Lol, or should I say “cock-a-doodle-doo”?
You seem to have caught them on the roll…

nrhatch - August 23, 2011

Thanks, enermazing! Glad it tickled your funny bone chakra! 😆
