No fighting chance against a clever farmer.



















Don Alselmo an old farmer on his way to the big city of Hermosillo and had to change buses at the terminal.

A nicely dressed businessman with a grey fedora, soon boarded the same bus in Moctezuma. 

There weren't too many seats and they ended up seating together for the four hour ride to the capital.

The nicely dressed businessman would have preferred not to seat next to the big sombrero'd man with dusty boots.

But he had no choice. 

After a few minutes of small conversation the businessman decided to test the old farmer.

The businessman said “Senor, I will ask you a question and if you don’t know the answer you must pay me 10 pesos.”

The old farmer  replied “Since you know much about everything, just to be fair if I ask you a question and you don’t know the answer you give me 20 pesos.”

The businessman smiled and agreed thinking he'd soon be $20.00 pesos richer.

The old farmer asked “What kind of animal that has 6 legs, 4 wings, can fly, and knows how to even swim upside down?”

The businessman thought for a second, then a second longer... baffled at the question he sheepishly said, “I don’t know."

He pulled out his wallet and said, "Here old man, here are your $20.00 pesos.”

He then straightened up in the seat, leaned forward and asked “Well you will have to tell me what that strange animal is called?”

Don Alselmo the old farmer straightened up in his seat and responded “I don't have a darn clue either, so here are your 10 pesos.”

Remember that there’s nothing wrong with looking a little foolish, when in fact, you’re clever.

Make it a great dia!
