|Farmer Jack once lived on a quiet rural highway, but as time went by, the traffic built up and eventually got so heavy and so fast that his free range chickens were being run over, at a rate of three to six a week. So he called the local police station to complain, "You've got to do something about all these people driving so fast and killing all my chickens," he said.
"What do you want me to do?" asked a policeman.
I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"
The next day the council erected a sign: SCHOOL CROSSING
Three days later Farmer Jack called the police. "You've still got to do something about these drivers. The school crossing sign seems to make them go even faster!" So a new sign was erected: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY but that really sped them up.
Frustrated, Farmer Jack said "Your signs are no good. Can I put up my own sign?" The policeman said ok.
After that, the phone calls to the Police Station stopped, but curiosity got the better of the officer, he called Farmer Jack, "How is the problem with the speeding drivers, Did you put up your sign?"
"Oh, I sure did and not one chicken has been killed." The policeman was really curious and thought he'd better go out and take a look at the sign. He also thought the sign may be something the police could use elsewhere to slow drivers down.
So he drove out to Farmer Jack's house and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign
'Slow down and watch for chicks!'
Life's just too short to take it with ice.
