An old man was sitting on his front porch down in Louisiana
watching the sunrise. He sees the neighbor's kid walk by carrying
something big under his arm.
He yells out "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"
Boy yells back "Roll of chicken wire."
Old man says "What you gonna do with that?"
Boy says "Gonna catch some chickens."
Old man yells "You damn fool, you can't catch chickens with
chicken wire!"
Boy just laughs and keeps walking.
That evening at sunset the boy comes walking by and to the old
man's surprise he is dragging behind him the chicken wire with about
30 chickens caught in it.


Same time next morning the old man is out watching the sun rise
and he sees the boy walk by carrying something kind of round in his
hand.
Old man yells out "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"
Boy yells back "Roll of duck tape."
Old man says "What you gonna do with that?"
Boy says back "Gonna catch me some ducks."
Old man yells back, "You damn fool, you can't catch ducks with
duck tape!"
Boy just laughs and keeps walking.
That night around sunset the boy walks by coming home and to the
old man's amazement he is trailing behind him the unrolled roll of
duck tape with about 35 ducks caught in it.

Same time next morning the old man sees the boy walking by
carrying what looks like a long reed with something fuzzy on the
end.
Old man says "Hey boy, whatcha got there?"
Boy says "It's a pussy willow.
Old man says "Wait up.... I'll get my hat."
