Is your dad or mum home?

A farmer drove to a neighbor’s farmhouse and knocked at the door.<>

A boy, about 9, opened the door<>

“Is your dad or mum home?” said the farmer.<>

“No, they went to town.”<>

“How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”<>

“No, he went with Mum and Dad.”<>

The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other,and mumbling to himself.<>

“I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message.”<>

“Well,” said the farmer uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It’s about your brother Howard getting my daughter Suzy pregnant”.<>

The boy thought for a moment…<>

“You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don’t know how much he charges for Howard.”<>
