The Sweet Potato
There’s an old man way out in the country who has a reputation for knowing just about everything. One day a young man comes to him and says, “Hey, wise old man, I have a problem. Women just don’t seem to notice me or like me at all. What can I do about it?” The old man answers, “Well, it’s just about sweet potato time. You take the biggest, longest sweet potato you dig up, and put it down in your pants. Women will notice you, and they’ll all want you.”
The young man thanked the old man for the advice, and left. A few weeks later he came back and said, “Look at me, old man. I did just what you said, stuffed that big sweet potato down my pants, and now the women seem to want even less to do with me than before. They actually avoid me now.”
The old man looked the young man over and said, “Front of your pants.”
