A man traveling down a country road was forced to stop before a giant puddle
covering the entire road. Looking to the side of the road, the man noticed a
farmer leaning on a fence. “Think it’s safe to cross?” the man asked.
“I reckon so,” replied the farmer.
The car was immediately swallowed by the puddle as the man drove in. In
fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out of his
car back to the surface. As his head broke the surface the man said to the
farmer, “I thought you said I could safely drive through this puddle!”
“Well, shoot!” said the farmer, scratching his head. “It only come up
chest-high on my ducks!”
