Little Johnny was spending a week on his Uncle Pete's farm and was helping with the chores. One day he was helping the farm hands to spread out a stack of hay to dry out.
Finally Little Johnny could contain his curiosity no longer so he asked, as he was wiping his brow, "Uncle Pete, is it a needle in a haystack we're looking for?"
Little Johnny: "My pa is very religious. He always bows his head and says a prayer before meals."
Dick: "Mine always says something when he sits down to eat. But he does not bow his head."
Little Johnny: "What does he say?"
Dick: "Go easy on the butter, its up to a dollar and half a pound."
