An Apocryphal Story

A man took his wife to see a cattle fair.

They reached the enclosure where stud bulls were being auctioned.

A sign in front of the first bull said: “This bull mated 50 times last year”.

The wife looked at her husband and said: “See. He mated 50 times in one year. You could learn something from him.”

They then proceeded to the next bull and in front of that bull there was a sign: “This bull mated 65 times last year”.

The wife pointed to the bull and taunted her husband: “This one mated 65 times last year. That works out to be over 5 times a month. You should surely learn from this one.”

They proceeded to the last bull, the prize bull of the fair, and the sign in front of this impressive stud bull proclaimed: “This bull mated 365 times last year”

The wife looked at the magnificent bull in awe and she exclaimed: “Wow! Just imagine. He mated 365 times last year. That is ONCE A DAY! You could really learn from this one!”

The man turned to his wife and said: “Okay.  But why don’t you ask the owner and find out if it was 365 times with the same cow.”

Cheers…!!! Have a mirthful weekend.
