The Problem Mule
Two young boys were trying to get a stubborn mule into a barn. The mule's ears touched the top of the small barn door, and he wouldn't go on any further.
One of the boys came up with a bright idea. "Why don't we cut two holes in the barn above the door for the ears to go through?" So they proceeded to do just that.
A city man was driving by and noticed the spectacle. So he asked what in the world they were doing. They told him they were cutting holes in the barn so the mule could go through the door. He asked, "Why don't you simply take a shovel and dig a small trench in the dirt?"
One old boy looked at the other and said, "Isn't that just like a city slicker." Then he yelled, "It's his ears that are too big, not his legs!"
