(I spotted this on another forum and thought I would share)

An elderly man in North Carolina had owned a large
farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back,
fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some
apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and
fixed up for swimming when it was built.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the
pond, as he hadn't been there for a while and look it
over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and
laughing with glee.

As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young
women skinny-dipping in his pond.

He made the women aware of his presence and they all
went to the deep end.

One of the women shouted to him, 'We're not
coming out until you leave!'

The old man frowned and replied, 'I didn't
come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you
get out of the pond naked.'

Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to
feed the alligator.'

My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
