A city slicker moves to the country and decides he is going to take up farming.
He heads to the local co-op and tells the man, "Give me a hundred baby chickens.
The co-op man complies. A week later the man returns and says, Give me two hundred baby chickens. The co-op man complies.
Again, a week later the man returns. This time he says, Give me five-hundred baby chickens. Wow! The co-op man replies You must really be doing well!
Naw, said the man with a sigh. I am either planting them too deep or too far apart!
