A farmer's son was explaining to his father how he would like to continue the family tradition of working the land just like his father and his father's father before him had done.
"But son," came the reply from the father, "don't you know that farming is a dying trade? What with cheap imports and low supermarket prices it's almost impossible to make a success of farming today and probably into the future. What are you thinking?! I've worked hard for years on this farm to make options for you so that you could choose what you do with your life.
"Please son I beg you to reconsider."
But the son replied that he was adamant in his choice of career
So the farmer walked across the room to his son and kicked him in his wedding tackle!
"Well son," he said, "that's how farming will feel everyday of your life....Consider that your FIRST TWO ACRES"
