If you've ever taken an advanced science class, you've probably heard the joke about the farmer with the unproductive cows, which ends with the punchline seen here. The joke is also a cautionary tale about simplifying a problem to the point where any solutions you reach are inapplicable to the real world. Any scientist would love to have this stitch on their desk, but it could serve as a healthy reminder to any of us that things are not always as simple in reality as they seem on paper.

The piece is shown stitched on 14ct baby blue aida, and framed in a 3x4" frame.
