Old farmer and the skinny dippers

An old farmer near Darwin had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large dam away from the house, picnic tables, a croquet court, and some mango and avocado trees. The dam was nice and deep and was ideal for swimming, though no one had disturbed its waters for quite a while.

As Darwin had expanded the suburbs had got closer, but he wasn't interested in breaking up his farm. Recently a neighboring farm had diversified and was employing backpackers to pick their fruit.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the dam, he heard some Nordic voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end of the pond.

One of the women shouted to him, "Ve are not coming out until you have left us alone!

The old man frowned and called back, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked." Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the crocodile."
