So, he decided to subscribe to a website that had Animal Jokes.
The farmer would visit the website every morning, find a good joke, then he would go and tell them it to the cows.
Well, believe it or not, the cows laughed and laughed at the jokes and they started to produce excellent milk. Their milk in fact became the best milk in the local area.
However, the news got around, none of the other farmers in the village were much amused.
Thus, his cows became the laughing stock of the community.
