A clergyman was walking down a country lane and saw a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off.

“You look hot, my son,” said the cleric.

“Why don’t you rest a moment, and I’ll give you a hand.”

“No thanks,” said the young man.

“My father wouldn’t like it.”

“Don’t be silly,” the minister said.

“Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water.”

Again the young man protested that his father would be upset.

Losing his patience, the clergyman said,

“Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I’ll give him a piece of my mind!”

“Well,” replied the young farmer,

“he’s under a load of hay.”
