One day, on an old country road...

It seems a young farm boy accidentally overturned his wagon load of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise.

"Hey Willis!!" the farmer yelled. "Forget your troubles. Come in and eat dinner with us. Then I'll help you get the wagon back up."

"That's mighty nice of you," Willis answered, "but I don't think Pa would like me to."

"Nonsense, come on!" the farmer insisted.

"Well, okay," the boy finally agreed, "but I'm pretty sure Pa won't like it."

After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. "I feel a lot better now, but dang, I just know Pa is going to be real upset."

"Don't be foolish!" the neighbor said with a smile. "By the way, where is your Pa?"

"He's under the wagon."
