  1. Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway
    But, as time went by, the traffic
    slowly built up at an alarming rate
    The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his
    chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a
    So one day Farmer John called the sheriff's office
    and said, "You've got to do something about all
