Mr. Barns, a city slicker from New York, bought a pumpkin patch. He thought that he could make more money with chickens than the previous owner made with pumpkins.
So, he went to a poultry farm and bought 50 chickens.
“50 is a lot of chickens for that little pumpkin patch,” commented the farmer.
“I am used to BIG business,” Mr. Barns replied.
A week later Mr. Barns returned.
“I need another 50 chickens,” he told the farmer.
The farmer replied, “Boy, you sure are serious about this chicken farming.”
“Oh yes,” Mr. Barns replied. “I just need to iron out a few problems with these new chickens.
“Problems?” asked the farmer.
“Yeah,” said Mr. Barns, “I think I planted the first batch too close together.”
