lane, saw a young farmer struggling to
load hay back onto a cart after it had
fallen off. First-year students at Texas A&M's Vet School were receiving theirfirst anatomy class, with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet. [...]
- You look tired, my
son, said the cleric. Why don't you rest
a moment, and I'll give you a hand.
- No thanks, said the young man. My
father wouldn't approve.
- Don't be
silly, the minister said. Everyone is
entitled to a break. Come and have a

me where I can find him and I'll give
him a piece of my mind!
replied the young farmer, you can tell
him whatever you like just as soon as I
get this hay off him.
