From an e-mail -

A Missouri farmer in his pickup, drove to a neighbor's, & knocked on the door. A Boy, about 9, opened the door.

"Is your Dad home?"
"No Sir, he isn't, he went to town."
"Well, is your mother here?"
"No Sir, she went to town with Dad."
"How about your brother, Howard, is he here?"
"No Sir, he went with Mom & Dad."

The farmer stood there, fidgeting & shifting from one foot to the other, & mumbling to himself.
The boy asked "Is there anything I can do for you? I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message."
"Well," said the farmer "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Suzie, pregnant."

The boy thought for a moment. "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull & $50 for the hog, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard." :)
