The Farmer and His Ad

A certain farmer lived on the same farm all his life. It was a good farm, but with the passing years the farmer grew tired of it. He longed for a change, something better. Every day he found some reason for criticizing some feature. Finally he decided to sell it and so he listed it with a realtor who promptly prepared a sales advertisement. As one might expect it listed all the advantages...ideal location, modern equipment, healthy livestock, acres of fertile ground, etc. Before placing the ad, the realtor called the farmer and read a copy to him so as to get his input and approval. When he had finished the farmer cried out, "Hold everything! I'm not going to sell after all. Why, I've been looking for a place like that all of my life!"
