ON THE EDGE OF COMMON SENSE
by Baxter Black, DVM

“Don’t be leanin’ on my
fender,” said the farmer to
the rep.
“TAKE A LOOK AT THIS
NEW SEED CORN,”
“Git your foot offa my
step!”
“AND I’VE GOT A LINE
OF CLEANERS TO REDUCE
YOUR BAC-T COUNT,”
“And reduce my line of
credit by the very same
amount!”
“NOT TO MENTION
SCOURS VACCINE TO PREVENT
THE DREADED CRUD,
AND THIS IRON ENRICHED
INJECTION TO REJUVENATE
TIRED BLOOD.”
“I don’t need yer blamed
concoctions! All my calves
are at their peak!”
“YEAH, I NOTICED
THAT YER DEADMAN’S
PILE IS SMALLER THAN
LAST WEEK, AND YER PIGS
ARE DOIN’ BETTER SINCE
YOU BOUGHT MY SUPPLEMENT.”
“It’s that parsley I been
addin’, not yer feed that
makes ‘em grunt!”
“HOW’S THAT HERBICIDE
I SOLD YA? KILLED THE
WEEDS IN YOUR FIELD.”
“Huh! It rained just right
this summer, that’s what
doubled up my yield!”
“DO YA NEED SOME
MORE INFLATIONS, BALER
TWINE OR RUBBER
BOOTS?”
“Read my lips! No milk
replacer, no organic substitutes!
Everything you try to
sell me just adds to my
expenses.
It’s hard enough to
keep’er runnin’ smooth
between the fences!
Can’t you see yer takin’
up my time. I’ve got to go
and feed.
So say good bye and
leave me…
What you think I’m gonna
need.”
