# Chickens and Creative Problem Solving

1. Chickens and Creative Problem Solving
Got a chuckle out of this one:

Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went
by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic
was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run
over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day Farmer John
called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something
about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my
chickens."

"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.

"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!"

So the next day he had the county workers go out and erect
a sign that said: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING

Three days later Farmer John called the sheriff and said,
"You've got to do something about these drivers. The School
Crossing sign seems to make them go even faster." So, again,
the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a
new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY

That really sped them up. So Farmer John called and called
and called every day for three weeks. Finally, he asked the
sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own
sign?"

The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." He
was going to let Farmer John do just about anything in order
to get him to stop calling everyday to complain. The sheriff
got no more calls from Farmer John.

Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he
decided to give Farmer John a call. "How's the problem with
those drivers. Did you put up your sign?"

"Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since
then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.

The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself,
"I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign. It might
be something that WE could use to slow down drivers."

So the sheriff drove out to Farmer John's house, and his jaw
dropped the moment he saw the sign. It was spray-painted
on a sheet of wood: NUDIST COLONY - Go slow and watch
out for the chicks!
