News that An international outcry has greeted the news that an American university is trying to “cure” gay sheep of their homosexuality… reminded me of an old joke.
I hope this offends ewes.
A sheep farmer realises his prize stud ram is getting old, so he seeks to replace him. A few attempts are unsuccessful, so he forks out huge money for the best young stud ram he can find.
He takes the new ram and puts him into the paddock with the old feller and his harem.
The young ram swaggers up to the old boy and announces he’s here to take over servicing the ewes.
The old feller says “OK mate, you’re young, I’m getting on, I’m willing to go 50/50, fair enough?
The young ram says “no way, you decrepit old prick, I’m taking the bloody lot.”
The old boy thinks for a second and then replies “tell you what, I’m a gambling ram, I’ll give you a race around the paddock, winner takes all.”
The young ram laughs “silly old prick, I’ll piss-bowl you, you’re on“
The old boy replies “tell you what though, just to make things interesting, how about you give me a 20 yard head start?”
The young ram says, “yeah, yeah, you silly old prick, lets get started, I want a go at those ewes”.
The old boy takes off and after he’s got a good start, the young ram follows
Pretty quickly the young ram catches up and soon he’s right on the old boys tail.
The old boy starts bleating and squealing in panic as the young ram draws right behind him.
The farmer is watching all this from his ute and with a deep sigh of disgust, draws his rifle out of its rack.
He lines up and just as the young ram is about to catch the old boy, the farmer shoots the new ram stone dead.
The farmer stands there and mutters to himself “Un-friggin-believable…Sixth poofter ram in a row!”
