Triumph of age

An old southern farmer had owned a large farm for several years. He had a
large pond in the back, fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts,
basketball court, etc. 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. 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 of the pond. One of the women shouted to him, “We’re not
coming out until you leave!”

The old man replied, “I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies
swim or make you get out of the pond naked. I only came to feed
the alligator.”

Moral: Old age and treachery will always triumph over youth and skill.
