Recently, a friend told me a story about a man and his truck, or more specifically it was a joke that an older gentleman told about a farmer and a truck and a load of manure. It reminded me of the “Little Golden Book,” titled “The Happy Man and His Dump Truck.” You probably either read it as a child or read it to your children.
In the Little Golden Book story, the happy man rode around in his dump truck giving animals a ride in the back. As the man drove around town and saw people; he waved, honked his horn and tipped his dump truck. Of course the animals enjoyed sliding around in the back of the dump truck.
It’s a happy story about how a good fellow waves, works for a living and is nice to animals. When all of the animals are finally dumped out, they laugh, oink, bark, meow, crow and thank the man for the fun ride – they do not hire a lawyer and sue the happy man for cruelty to animals.
