    This is too good to post just on the humor forum so I'm posting it here, too. I didn't write it but received it from a friend.


    Here goes...

    At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word "service."
    The act of doing things for other people. Then I heard the terms Internal Revenue
    Service, Postal Service, Civil Service, Service Stations...and I became confused about
    the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.

    Then one day, I overheard two farmers talking and one of them mentioned that he was
    having a bull service a few of his cows.


    It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those "service" agencies are
    doing to us...
