Haircut

A man accompanied by a small boy enters a barbershop and asks for a haircut. The man says, “I might just pop next door for a beer while you cut the kid’s hair.” The barber gives the boy a haircut, and then-after waiting a quite some time for the man to return-turns to the kid and asks, “Where on earth has your father gone to?”

“That’s not my father,” says the boy. “He’s just some guy who stopped me in the street and asked if I’d like a free haircut.”

The Law of life

After potatoes have been harvested they have to be spread out and sorted out in order to get the maximum market dollar. They are divided according to size – big , medium and small. It is only after potatoes have been sorted and bagged that they are loaded on to trucks. This is the method that all potatoes farmers use.

But one farmer never bothered to sort the potatoes at all. Yet he seemed to be making most money. a puzzled neighbour finally asked him, “What is your secret?” He said, “Its simple I just loaded up the wagon with potatoes and take the roughest road to town. During the eight mile trip, the little potatoes always fall to the bottom. The medium potatoes land in the middle, while the big potatoes rise to the top.”

That is not only true with potatoes. It is Law of life. Big potatoes rise to the top on the rough roads and tough people rise to the top in rough times.

Self-improvement

A school psychologist was giving an intelligence test to a group of 8-year-olds. He took a map of the world from a “National Geographic,” tore it up into tiny pieces and handed the fragments to one of the boys.

The lad pondered the pieces intently for a few minutes, then quickly assembled the map without a flaw.

“Wonderful!” exclaimed the psychologist. “How did you do it so fast and so well?”, He inquired of the smiling eight-year-old.

“Well,” replied the boy, “There was a big picture of a man on the other side. If you get that man straightened out, world will come out all right.”

Corn Secret

A reporter once asked a farmer to divulge the secret behind his corn, which won the state fair contest year after year. The farmer confessed it was all because he shared his seeds with his neighbours. “Why do you share your best seed corn with your neighbours when you’re entering the same contest each year as well?” asked the reporter.

“Why sir” said the farmer, Didn’t you know that the wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field? If my neighbours grew inferior corn, cross-pollination¬†would steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours do the same.
