Lunch conversation

I was having lunch with a friend of mine the other day, and
right after the meal I stood up and said, "Excuse me, I have
to say hello to an old friend. I'll be back in two minutes."

He gave me a quizzical look, "Why on Earth do you have to
call an old friend right in the middle of lunch!?"

I stared back at him for a few seconds until the light of
realization spread across his face. He gave a chuckle and
waved me off.

When I got back to the table he asked me, "How is your old

"Same as always," I replied. "I told him I was having lunch
with you and he asked about your mother."

A farmer went to the local bank to borrow money for a new
bull. The loan was made and Banker Bill, who lent the money,
came by a week later to see how the bull was doing.

The farmer complained that the bull just ate grass and
wouldn't even look at a cow.

Banker Bill suggested that he have a veterinarian take a
look at the bull.

Next week, Banker Bill returned to see if the vet had helped.
The farmer looked very pleased. "The bull has serviced all
of my cows! He broke through the fence, and bred all my
neighbor's cows! He's been breeding just about everything in
sight. He's like a machine!"

"Wow," said Banker Bill, "what did the vet do to that bull?"

"Just gave him some pills," replied the farmer.

"What kind of pills?" asked Banker Bill.

"I don't know, but they kind of taste like peppermint."
