Rail Tie

Ed & Joe were out in the woods when they ran onto an old mine shaft. Of course, they started dropping stones down to see how deep it was, but they couldn't hear them hit bottom. So, they got bigger and bigger rocks and boulders but still could not hear anything. Finally, Joe went quite a distance and came back dragging a railroad tie and they threw that down. While they were standing on the edge listening, a goat ran between them and went straight down the hole. While they were listening for the goat to see it if would hit, a farmer came up and asked, "Have you seen a goat come by? I'm missing mine." They said, "Well, one just ran between us and jumped down this old mine shaft." The farmer said, "No, it couldn't have been mine - I had him tied to a railroad tie!"
