I heard a noise in the barn the other day. I went down there. My brother
bought a new mule and he was trying to get the mule through the barn door
but he couldn't get the mule through the barn door because the mule's ears
was too long.
So brother had a saw and he was sawing off the top of the barn door to
get the mule in. I said, "It's a dirt floor, why don't you just dig a
trench and take the mule in that way?"
And brother said, "It ain't his legs that's too long, it's his ears!"
