Friday Funny: The Ornery Farmer

Angry FarmerClifford and Daisy were farmers who were married for many years. Together they raised crops and cattle on some of the poorest land in the Florida Panhandle. Life for them was never easy and it showed. Their marriage was somewhat legendary in the region, because of their constant bickering, loud arguments, and things being thrown and broken. As mean as they seemed to be towards each other, they were always seen around town together, and they never divorced or even separated.

Neighbors could hear the most heated of their arguments from some distance away. Occasionally their yelling could be heard deep into the night. Clifford would shout, “When I die, I’ll dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life ol’ woman!

Neighbors avoided the odd couple as much as possible. Quite frankly, Clifford preferred people stay out of his business and to be left alone. Clifford died when he was 87.

After the burial, Daisy’s neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, “Aren’t you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?” She replied, “LET HIM DIG. I HAD HIM BURIED UPSIDE DOWN. I KNOW HE’S TOO ORNERY TO STOP TO ASK FOR DIRECTIONS!
