Chuckle Of The Day – The Cow From Maine

I love cows! I also love laughing at a joke when I can’t guess the punch line. I hope this makes you smile today.

The Cow From Maine

The only cow in a small town in Colorado stopped giving milk. The owners did some research and found they could buy a replacement cow in Maine for $200.00.

They bought the cow from Maine and the cow was wonderful! It produced lots of milk all the time and the people were pleased and very happy. They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it. They would never have to worry about their milk supply again.

They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow, however whenever the bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest.

The people were very upset and decided to ask the local Vet, who was very wise, what to do. They told the Vet what was happening. “Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An approach from the side and she walks away to the other side.”

The Vet thinks about this for a minute and asked, “Did you buy this cow in Maine?”

The people were dumbfounded since they had never mentioned where they bought the cow. They asked, “You are truly a wise Vet, but how did you know we got the cow in Maine?”

The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye, “My wife is from Maine.”
