Jackson glared at the calf in the barnyard. The cerebral development hormones he’d given him failed to take hold, obviously. “Dang calf ain’t no smarter than his momma,” he grumped.
“What’s he done now?” asked farmhand Watters.
“Found ‘im with my computer.”
“Uh oh. Was he stompin’ on it?”
“Droolin’ on it?”
“Damn near. The ijit was writing programs. Wrote a FOR Loop and forgot to set the initial variables. Then he blamed it all on the C++ compiler, saying it wasn’t patched properly with the online updates. Can you believe it?”
“Well Hells Bells, Jackson!” spat Watters. “That is a dumb calf!”
