Centre-pivot irrigator

In 1952, a U.S. patent for a "Self-Propelled Sprinkling Irrigating Apparatus" was issued to Frank L. Zybach of Strasburg, Colorado (No. 2,604,359). A centre-pivoted pipe supported on a series of water-piston-powered wheels rotates and sprinkles water on the crops.A control system ensures that each wheel advances at the correct rate. This is the now-familiar centre-pivot machine that waters large circles of crops in those areas of a country which have limited rainfall but have a supply of surface or well water. It provides irrigation for large areas of even closely-spaced crops for which irrigation ditches are not practical and wasteful of water, or that would be expensive to supply with full coverage with stationary sprinklers.«[Image: a modern example showing the sprinkler pipe carried above a series of large wheels.]

Pet Monkey

Guy in a bar playing pool has a pet monkey. Monkey jumps onto the table, grabs the cue ball and stuffs it into his mouth and swallows it. Bartender freaks and starts yelling about how much cue balls cost , etc. The guy tries to calm him down and tells him the monkey will pass it in the next day or so and he'll wash it off real well and bring it back.
Sure enough the guy and the monkey come back into the bar and gave the bartender his cue ball back. Meanwhile the monkey reaches into the peanut bowl, grabs a nut, sticks it in his butt--then eats it. The bartender stares at the monkey who continues to repeat this action again and again. So he asks the guy, "what's up with that?"
"What?"
"your monkey keeps grabbing peanuts one at a time and sticking them in his butt then eating them."
"Oh, that---well, ever since the pool ball incident, he has to measure everything before he eats it."
