One summer’s evening an old farmer decided to go down to the pond at the bottom of one of his fields to check that the water was clear and that everything was all right. On his way down to the pond he picked up a bucket to bring some fresh fruit back to the farmhouse.
As he set out across the field, he started to hear shrill voices shouting and laughing joyfully in the distance, and on his arrival at the pond, he saw three young women skinny dipping in the cool clear water. Somewhat surprised, the farmer cleared his throat loudly to make them aware of his presence. On seeing the farmer, the three women shrieked and moved towards the middle of the pond where the water was a little deeper. One of them then shouted out to the farmer, “We’re not coming out of the water until you leave!”
The farmer frowned and replied, “I didn’t come down here to watch you young ladies swim naked in the pond or to make you get out of the pond naked.” Then, quick as a flash, he held up the bucket, and with a look of feigned disinterest, he added, “I’m just here to feed the alligator.”
