The helpful cow

Driving along a country back road, a man’s engine died. He pulled the auto off the road, stopping by a field of grazing cattle. He got out, lifted the hood, and peered helplessly at all the wires and hoses.

“I suspect your problem,” came a voice from the field, “is with the carburetor.”

The man looked toward the field, but all he saw was a big cow leaning its head over the barbed wire and into the engine compartment.

The man ran down the road as fast as he could. At the nearest farmhouse, he told the farmer the whole story.

“Was it a big tan cow," asked the farmer, “with a white spot over the left eye?”

‘Yes,” shrugged the man, “yes, it was!”

“Oh, I wouldn't pay any attention to Bessie," said the farmer. “She doesn't know the first thing about cars.”
