Farmer's TV

One day, a farmer went into town to pick out a new television. He found one that he thought would do just fine. As the area had no cable TV, he picked out an antenna as well.

At the store the sales person assured him that the store would install the antenna and TV the next day. The television and antenna were delivered and installed as promised.

The next evening the farmer turned on his new TV and found only political ads on every channel.

The next morning he turned the TV on and found only political ads again.

When he came in to eat lunch he tried the TV again but still only found political ads.

The following day, when he still found only political ads he called the store to complain.

The owner said that it was impossible for every channel to only have political ads, but agreed to send their repairman to check the TV.

When the TV repairman turned on the TV he found that the farmer was right.

After looking at the TV for a while the repairman went outside to check the antenna.

In a few minutes the repairman returned and told the farmer he had found the problem.

The antenna had been installed improperly He found it had been installed on top of the windmill and grounded to the manure spreader
