The Cowboy's Private Sermon
One Sunday a cowboy went to church. When he entered, he saw
that he and the preacher were the only ones present. The
preacher asked the cowboy if he wanted him to go ahead and
The cowboy said, "I'm not too smart, but if I went to feed
my cattle and only one showed up, I'd feed him."
So the minister began his sermon.
One hour passed, then two hours, then two-and-a-half hours.
The preacher finally finished and came down to
ask the cowboy how he liked the sermon.
The cowboy answered slowly, "Well, I'm not very smart, but
if I went to feed my cattle and only one showed up, I sure
wouldn't feed him all the hay."
