A farm boy accidentally overturned a wagon load of corn.
A farmer, who lived nearby, heard the noise and yelled to the boy, “Hey, Willis, forget your troubles and come in for a visit. I’ll help you pick the wagon up later.”
“That’s mighty nice of you,” Willis answered, “but Pa wouldn’t like me to.”
“Aw, come on, boy,” the farmer insisted.
“Well, OK” the boy finally agreed, “but Pa won’t like it.”
After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. “I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset.”
“Don’t be foolish,” the neighbor said with a smile; “by the way, where is he?”
“Under the wagon,” replied the boy.
