A traveling salesman gets lost on his way to the next city when night is falling.
Tired and weary he suddenly sees a farmhouse close to the road and decides to pull in. When the farmer opens the door, he asks if he could sleep at his farm for a night.
The farmer goes, “I could put you up for one night, but you’ll have to stay in the barn.”
So he spends the night there and when the next morning the farmer comes in, he goes, “Were you comfortable?”
The saleman says, “I had a great time; I talked to all the animals.”
The farmer looks at him incredously and repeats, “You talked to the animals?”
The salesman goes, “Yeah, I spoke to the chickens, they say you collect the eggs every morning exactly at five minutes after six.”
The farmer is amazed and answers, “That’s exactly right!”
The saleman continues, “The horse tells me his name is Otis, you’ve owned him for 10 years.”
The farmer stares, his mouth open: “That’s incredible!”
The salesman is unstoppable: “I spoke to the cow, the cow says that her name is Elsie and you milk her every morning at exactly 8:30. And then I spoke to the sheep…”
The farmer interrupts him, “Those sheep are a lying bunch!”
