    This farmer has about 500 hens, but no rooster, and he wants chicks. So, he goes down the road to the next farmer and asks if he has a rooster that he would sell. The other farmer says, "Yep, I've got this great rooster, named Kenny. He'll service every chicken you got, no problem."Well, Kenny the rooster costs \$3,000, a lot of money, but the farmer decides he'd be worth it. So, he buys Kenny. The farmer takes Kenny home and sets him down in the barnyard, but first he gave the rooster a pep talk. "I want you to pace yourself now. You've got a lot of chickens to service here, and you cost me a lot of money. Consequently, I'll need you to do a good job.! So, take your time and have some fun," the farmer said, with a chuckle.!Kenny seems to understand, so the farmer points toward the hen house and Kenny takes off like a shot. WHAM! Kenny nails every hen in the hen house - three or four times, and the farmer is really shocked.After that, the farmer hears a commotion in the duck pen and, sure enough, Kenny is in there. Later, the farmer sees Kenny after a flock of geese down by the lake. Once again - WHAM! He gets all the geese. By sunset he sees Kenny out in the fields chasing quail and pheasants.The farmer is distraught and worried that his expensive rooster won't even last 24 hours. Sure enough, the farmer goes to bed and wakes up the next morning to find Kenny on his back out in the middle of the yard, mouth open, tongue hanging out and both feet sticking straight up in the air. Buzzards are circling overhead.The farmer, saddened by the loss of such a colorful and expensive animal, shakes his head and says, "Oh, Kenny, I told you to pace yourself. I tried to get you to slow down, now look what you've done to yourself."Kenny opens one eye, nods toward the buzzards circling in the sky and says, "Shhhh .. they're getting closer."

    I've heard that one since the 60s...I think it was off "Gene Tracy's Truck Stop" record...he was a rough old cob of a jokester...LOL

    You'd be right. Gene Tracy's Truck Stop9. My uncle had the 8 track. Gene called him Brooster the Rooster. Lot mor "adjectives" in Gene's version! Lol! Good memories

    You're right...these were on 8 track tape. Which means it had to be in the 70s, not 60s. But I did find this--

    There's several on youtube.

    Yep, that'd be Brewster or Brooster the Rooster. Dad had the Gene Tracy's but I'd have to sneak and play them.

    LOL! I had a friend whose dad had them. We'd sneak them out and listen to them. Had my parents known what I was listening to, I would have gotten a good hide tanning. LOL
