A farmer goes to town to run his usual errands. He has a pig, an anvil, a bucket and a chicken. He’s thinking to himself, Now, how am I going to carry a pig, an anvil, a bucket and a chicken. So he thinks about it for a bit, and decides to carry the bucket, put the pig in the bucket, place the anvil on top of the pig and carry the chicken under his other arm.

So he trudges into town carrying his load, when a pretty girl admiring his physique says:

— Sir, do you know the way to the fabric store?

The farmer smiles, and says:

— Follow me down this alley, I’ll be going right past it.

The girl says:

— If I follow you down this alley, you might molest me.

The farmer says:

— How could I molest you? I’m carrying a pig, an anvil, a bucket and a chicken.

The girl quickly follows:

— Well, you could put the pig down, place the bucket over the pig, place the anvil on top of the bucket, and I could hold the chicken.
