Farming aphorisms (borrowed from 24hourcampfire)

The best fertilizer for sweet corn is dead raccoons.

A farmer should never raise animals that are smarter than he is. That rules out goats, horses, pigs and dogs for most people.

The farmer listed above can raise teenagers. Teenagers are like cats, they are not as smart as they think they are because they mistake luck for intelligence.

Why are teenagers so lucky?  Divine intervention, God already has more fools and teenagers in heaven than the electric fence can handle.

Teenagers have marvelously, entertaining brains. At least that is what we deduce from the constant rolling of their eyes.  They are admiring the brain they inherited from you.

Competing hypothesis, teenagers are checking to see if their brain came back yet when they roll their eyes.
