    I got this one today:

    Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway.
    But, as time went by, the traffic
    slowly built up at an alarming rate.
    The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his
    chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day.

    So one day Farmer John called the sheriff's office
    and said, "You've got to do something about all
    of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."

    "What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.
    "I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
    So the next day he had the county workers
    go out and erected a sign that said:


    Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff
    and said , "You've got to do something about these drivers.
    The 'school crossing' sign seems to make them go even faster."
    So, again, the sheriff sends out the county
    workers and they put up a new sign:

    That really sped them up. So Farmer John called
    and called and called every day for three weeks.
    Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are
    doing no good. Can I put up my own sign?"
    The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign.."
    He was going to let the Farmer John do just about
    anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain.

    The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer John.
    Three week s later, curiosity go the best of the
    sheriff and he decided to give Farmer John a call.
    "How's the problem with those drivers.
    Did you put up your sign?"
    "Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been
    killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy."
    He hung up the phone.
    The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to
    himself, "I'd better go out there and take a
    look at that sign... it might be something that
    WE could use to slow down drivers..."

    So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John's house,
    and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign.
    It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood:

    Go slow and watch out for chicks!!

    Can I borrow that line? We were thinking "Reward: Lost one bucket of nails!" Or simply "LOOSE NAILS" but I am afraid of being held responsible for all flat tires...[​IMG] could get expensive! My biggest problem is the school bus driver or if theres an accident on 169 everyone uses the road in front of my house!
