And hard place
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
An old farmer, who lived back in the days of the horse and buggy, discovered one day that birds had begun making their nests in the manes of his horses. He tried many things to keep the birds away from the horses. He tied ribbons in their manes in hopes of scaring the birds away, but they fell out. He cut their manes short, but they soon grew back again. He tried many things, but nothing worked.
One day while talking to some of his friends in town about his problem, one of them asked if he had tried rubbing yeast into the manes of the horses. Well, he was desperate enough to try anything so he purchased some yeast and went home.
A month later he met the friend again, and was happy to report the yeast had really worked. He had rubbed it into the mane of the horses and the birds had left. He commented that he certainly didn’t understand why it had worked.
The friend said, “I thought everyone knew that ‘Yeast is Yeast and Nest is Nest, and never the mane shall tweet!'”
