A farmer had a bull that wasn't getting the job done that he was supposed
to, so the farmer went to town to see the veterinarian. The vet gave the
farmer a large pill and a small pill. He instructed the farmer to give the
bull the large pill. And if that didn't do the job, then to give the bull
the small pill also.
The farmer gave the bull the large pill and it was obvious that that was
all that was needed. The vet had instructed the farmer to destroy the small
pill if not used. The farmer was working on the well at the time so he
decided to just drop it in the well. A few days later while he was in town
he saw the vet on the street.
The vet asked about the bull and the farmer told him the big pill did the
job so he dropped the small pill in the well.
The vet got excited and said, "You aren't drinking that well water, are you?"
"Heck no," the farmer replied. "I can't even get the pump handle down!"
