    Farmer John lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the
    traffic slowly 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 three to six a

    So one day 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
