A farmer went out one day and bought a brand 
 stud rooster for his chicken coop. The 
new rooster struts over to the old rooster and says, 

'OK old fart,
 Time for you to retire.' 
The old rooster replies, 'Come on, 
surely you cannot handle ALL of these 
chickens. Look what it has done to me 
Can't you just let me have the two old 
hens over in the corner?' 
The young rooster says, 'Beat it: 
You are washed up And I am taking over.' 

The old rooster says, 'I tell you what, 
young stud. I will race you around the 
farmhouse. Whoever wins gets the 
exclusive domain over the entire chicken 

The young rooster laughs. 'You know 
you don't stand a chance, old man. 
So, just to be fair, I will give you a head 

The old rooster takes off running. 
About 15 seconds later the young 
rooster takes off running after him. 
They round the front porch of the 
farmhouse and the young rooster has 
closed the gap. 

He is only about 5 feet behind the old 
rooster and gaining fast! 
The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting in 
his usual spot on the front porch 
When he sees the roosters running by. 

Old Rooster is squawking 
And running as hard as he can. 
The Farmer grabs his shotgun and
- BOOM - He blows the young rooster 
to bits. The farmer sadly shakes his 
head and says, 'Dammit..... . Third 
rooster I bought this month.' 

Moral of this
 Story? .... 
Don't mess with the
Age, skill, wisdom, and a little treachery
Always overcome youth and arrogance!
