    Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of 3 to 6 a day. So Farmer John called the sheriff's office and said,

    "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."

    "What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.

    "Oh, I sure did," Farm John replied. "And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go now, I'm very busy!" and he hung up the phone.

    The sheriff was very curious now, and he thought:

    "I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign. It might be something that the county could use to slow down drivers elsewhere..."
