Little Johnny was walking down the road one day and an old man was
sitting on his front porch rocking back and forth in his rocking

The old man said, 'Whatcha got there, son?'

Johnny said, 'Got me some chicken wire.'

'Whatcha gonna do with that chicken wire, son?' asked the old man.

'Gonna catch me some chickens,' said Johnny.

'You can't catch chickens with chicken wire,' said the oldster.

Johnny just shrugged his shoulders and walked on down the street.

About half an hour later, Johnny came back passing the old man's
front porch with three chickens entangled in the chicken wire. The
old man was shocked and couldn't believe his eyes.

A little later Johnny passed the old man's porch again. 'Whatchagot now, son?' 'Got me some duct tape.' 'And whatcha gonna do with that duct tape?' the old man asked. 'Gonna catch me some ducks.' 'You can't catch ducks with duct tape,' said the old man. Johnny just shrugged his shoulders and kept on walking. About half an hour later, back comes Johnny with three ducks tangled in the duct tape. Again, the old man rubbed his eyes in disbelief. Half an hour later, Johnny was again passing the old man's porch. 'Whatcha got now, son?' asked the old codger. 'Got me some pu$$y willow.' 'Wait right there' spluttered the old guy, leaping up from his rocking chair, 'just wait while I get my shoes!' [88]
