There were two farmers, neither one had much common sense. They were told by the Forman to put the mule in the barn.
When they led the mule over to the barn, they decided that the mule's ears were too long and he would not fit into the barn. So they put their heads together and decided to get a ladder and a saw and saw the overhead of the barn out so the mule could walk right on in the barn.
They began their job and the Forman walked over to them and asked them why they were sawing out the top of the barn. When they told the Forman the mule's ears were too long to go into the barn, the Forman said, "Why don't you just get a shovel and dig the dirt out of the ground below, then the mule could walk on in."
The two goobers looked at each other and said, "We told you his ears are too long, not his feet!"
