A man was walking home from the market, carrying a goose, a bucket with an anvil inside, and a chicken under each arm.
A woman came up and asked him for directions, and the man told her he was going that way, and why don’t they take a short cut through the alley?
The woman said, “Well, how do I know you won’t grab me when we get in that dark alley, and have your way with me?”
“Ma’am, how could I do that?” the man asked. “I’ve got a bucket with an anvil in it, a goose and two live chickens?”
“Well,” she said, “You put the goose on the ground, put the bucket on the goose, and put the Anvil on top the bucket. And I’ll hold the two chickens.”
