Description: Henhouse Needs a New Rooster
An old farmer decides it's time to get a new rooster for his hens.
The current rooster is still doing an okay job, but he's getting on
in years. And the farmer figures getting a new rooster can't hurt
anything. So he buys a young cock from the local rooster emporium,
and turns him loose in the barn yard.

Well, the old rooster sees the young one strutting around and he
gets a little worried. So, they're trying to replace me, thinks the
old rooster. I've got to do something about this. He walks up to the
new bird and says, "So you're the new stud in town? I bet you really
think you're hot stuff, don't you? Well I'm not ready for the
chopping block yet. I'll bet I'm still the better bird. And to prove
it, I challenge you to a race around that hen house over there. We'll
run around it ten times and whoever finishes first gets to have all
the hens for himself.' Well, the young rooster is a proud sort, and
he definitely thinks he's more than a match for the old guy. "You're
on," says the young rooster. "And since you're so old, I'll even give
you a head start of half a lap. I'll still win easy," says the young
rooster.

So the two roosters go over to the hen house to start the race with
all the hens gathering around to watch. The race begins and all the
hens start cheering the roosters on. After the first lap, the old
rooster is still maintaining his lead. After the second lap, the old
guy's lead has slipped a little but he's still hanging in there.
Unfortunately the old rooster's lead continues to slip each time
around, and by the fifth lap he's just barely in front of the young
rooster. By now the farmer has heard all the commotion . He runs into
the house, gets his shotgun, and runs out to the barnyard figuring a
fox or something is after his chickens. When he gets there, he sees
the two roosters running around the hen house, with the old rooster
still slightly in the lead. He immediately takes his shotgun, aims,
fires, and blows the young rooster away. As he walks away slowly, he
says to himself...

"Damn, that's the third gay rooster I've bought this month."
