Used Lawn Mower

A preacher retired and moved to the country to enjoy life and practice his hobby of yard work.  Needing a lawn mower, he headed into town to buy one.  On the way he saw a sign advertising a lawn mower for sale.  He stopped at the house and a young lad came out to greet him.  The preacher asked about the lawn mower and the kid said it was behind the house.  The two went to look at the lawn mower.  The engine was sputtering along at idle speed.  The preacher increased the speed of the engine and mowed a few strips.  Satisfied that the mower would do the job they settled on a price of $25.00.

Later in the day, the young lad was riding his bicycle when he spied the preacher pulling on the engine starter rope.  The kid stopped and watched for a couple of minutes.  He asked, "What's wrong?"

The reply came, "I can't get this mower started.  Do you know how?"

The kid said, "Yep."

"Well, how do you do it?  Tell me!", the preacher yelled.

The kid replied, "You have to cuss it."

The preacher rose up indignantly.  "Now you listen here.  I am a preacher and if I ever did cuss, not saying I have, I've forgotten how to do it after all these years."

With a wise look on his face well beyond his years, the kid said, "Preacher, you keep on pulling that rope and it'll all come back to ya."
