A travelling salesman was driving through farm country.
He took his eye off the road for a second, then all of a sudden “WHAM!” — he ran over a rooster crossing the road.
He stopped the car, got out, confirmed the rooster was dead and saw a nearby farmhouse.
He drove up to the house, knocked on the door, and an old farmer answered.
The salesman said,
“I was driving past and I think I accidentally ran over your rooster. I’m terribly sorry, but I’m more than willing to replace him.”
The farmer looked puzzled for a minute, and finally shrugged his shoulders and said
“Suit yourself. The hens are around the back.”
