Not Raising Hogs Joke

Not Raising Hogs Joke

My friend, Ed Peterson, over at Wellsburg, Iowa, received a checkfor $1,000.00 from the government for not raising hogs. So I want togo into the “not raising hogs” business next year. What I want to know is, in your opinion, what is the best kind offarm not to raise hogs on and what is the best breed of hogs not toraise? I want to be sure that I approach this endeavor in keepingwith all governmental policies. I would prefer not to raiserazorbacks, but if that is not a good breed not to raise, then I wouldjust as gladly not raise Yorkshires or Durocs. As I see it, the hardest part of this program will be in keeping anaccurate inventory of how many hogs I haven’t raised. My friend, Peterson, is very joyful about the future of thebusiness. He has been raising hogs for twenty years or so, and thebest he ever made on them was $442.00 in 1968, until this year when hegot your check for $1,000.00 for not raising hogs. If I get $1,000.00 for not raising 50 hogs, will I get $2,000.00 fornot raising 100 hogs? I plan to operate on a small scale at first,holding myself down to about 4,000 hogs not raised, which will meanabout $80,000.00 the first year. Then I can afford an airplane. Now another thing. These hogs I will not be raising will not eat100,000 bushels of corn. I understand that you also pay farmers fornot raising corn and wheat. Will I qualify for payments for notraising wheat and corn not to feed the 4,000 hogs I am not going toraise? I want to get started as soon as possible as this seems to be a goodtime of the year not to raise hogs and grain. Also, I am considering the “not milking cows” business, so send meany information on that too. In view of these circumstances, you understand that I will betotally unemployed and plan to file for unemployment and food stamps. Be a*sured you will have my vote in the coming election.Patriotically yours,Jean Partridge
