With Age Comes Wisdom

Valentine's Day I celebrated my 41st birthday. For the record, I still feel like I am 25....on most days anyway.
A friend of mine printed a joke for me and I thought I would share it here on my blog.
"Stud Rooster"

A farmer went out one day & bought a brand new stud rooster for the hens in his chicken coop.
The new rooster struts over to the old rooster and says, "OK old fart, time for you to retire!" The old rooster replies, "Come on, surely you cannot handle ALL of these hens? Look what it has done to me, can't you just let me have the two old biddies over there in the corner?" The young roosters answers, "Beat it! You are washed up and I AM taking over!"
The old rooster answers, "I tell you what, young stud. I will race you around the farmhouse. Whoever wins gets the exclusive domain over the entire chicken coop". The young rooster laughs, "you know you don't stand a chance, old man. So just to be fair, I will give you a head start"
The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off running after him. They round the front porch of the farmhouse and the young rooster is closing the gap.
He is only about 5 feet behind the old rooster and gaining fast. The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting in his usual spot on the porch when he sees the roosters running by.
The old rooster is squalking and running as hard as he can. The farmer grabs his shotgun and BOOM! He blows the young rooster to bits. The farmer sadly shakes his head and says, "Damnit!.....that's the third gay rooster I bought this month!"
Moral of the story?
Don't mess with the "Older Generation" , age, skill, wisdom, and a little treachery will always overcome youth and arrogance!
