He decides that he wants to become a farmer, so he moves to the country where he buys a farm.
He heads to the local co-op and tells the man, “Give me a hundred baby chickens”.
The co-op man complies.
A week later the man returns and says, “Give me two hundred baby chickens”.
Again, the man from the co-op complies with his request.
A week later the man returns again.
This time he says, “Give me five hundred baby chickens”.
“Wow!”, the man from the co-op replies, “you must really be doing well!”
“Not really”, said the new farmere with a sigh. “Either I’m planting them too deep, or too far apart!”
