Old cock : Young boy, there are twenty-five hens here, can’t I help you with some?
Young cock : No! Not even one, all of them will be mine.
Old cock : In this case, I shall challenge you to a

Young cock : O.K. What kind of competition?
Old cock : 50 metre run. From here to that tree. But

Young cock : No problem ! We will compete tomorrow

Bang! ….. before he could overtake the Old cock, he was shot dead by the farmer, who cursed, “This is the fifth GAY chicken I’ve bought this week.” Yee …………
