    A wise old cow once said… What goes up must come down!

    I’m heading for home from a high stress people handling course. In the interest of work place safety we now provide exit facilities for people who highly stress their cows.

    I believe you wanted the ladder?

    So, a cow runs into a ladder.
    She says, “I rung you, you didn’t answer?”
    and the ladder says, ” I know , I hung up on you”.
