The Farmer’s Friend

Every product I develop is thoroughly tested at home before I take it on the road. I may stop this practice, however. Last summer I came up with a way to help farmers who must milk their cows before sunrise. I collected a lot of lightning bugs and fed them to our cow. Sure enough, her udders began to glow in the dark. I neglected to tell my wife about it, though, before I went out on a sales trip. When I returned a few days later, she told me that if I planned to market this product I should also include something to treat chickens that stop laying eggs – as ours had -- due to prolonged exposure to a woman’s screams.
