Breaking Breakfast

A young man on the farm came out of his room one morning, and asked his mom, “What’s for breakfast?”.
She said, “You know you don’t eat until the stock’s taken care of. You can eat when you get back in.”
The boy left in a huff, and his mom watched him as he fed the stock. He kicked the pigs when fed them; he kicked the chickens when he fed them, and he kicked the cattle when he fed them.
He came back in and saw a bowl of dry cereal on the table. He asked if that was all he got for breakfast.
His mom said, “I saw you when you kicked the pigs, so you don’t get any bacon for a week. I saw you when you kicked the chickens, so you don’t get any eggs for a week. I saw you when you kicked the cows, so you don’t get any milk for a week.”
About that time, his dad comes out of the bedroom and kicks the cat out of his way. The son looks at his mom, and says, “Do you want to tell him, or should I?”
