A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding,
and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his
speed, and in general began to throw his weight around to
try to make the farmer uncomfortable.
It is common in rural communities for Ministers to take a summer vacation and have a minister from a neighboring town perform the Sunday Service.
One Sunday the substitute Preacher arrives to find only a retired farmer in the Church.
"You're the only person here. Should I still deliver the sermon?"
"Well," says the farmer, "If I went down in the field and there was only one cow there I would certainly feed it."
So the Preacher recites a 45 minute long sermon. After finishing he asks the farmer how he liked the sermon.
"Well," says the farmer, "If I went down to the field and only one cow was there, I wouldn't give it the whole damn load?"
