A detective was once called to a farm in rural Tennessee to investigate a murder. [OC]

As the detective entered the farm, he promptly inquired of the farmer about the calamity.

The farmer recounted, “I was tinkering with the tractor in the barn, struggling with the oil filter when all at once, there was a scream, a deafening bang, and then quiet. I dashed outside to find my helper, lifeless on the ground, blood pooling around his head.”

The detective pondered, “Did anyone witness the event?”

“No humans,” the farmer replied, “but present were my old cow Bessie, my loyal dog Rex, my steed, Hank, and the sheep duo Sam and Dean. But when questioned, they just cast suspicious glances toward one another.”

“Understood,” the detective proclaimed, rising briskly, “we’ll need to hold a musical showdown.”

Although the farmer was baffled, he trusted the detective’s renowned skill for cracking the toughest cases. So later, with a rudimentary stage set up in the yard, the animals eyed their musical gear with confusion.

Up first were Bessie the cow and Rex the dog. Bessie’s song was so moving it brought tears to the eyes of both men, and Rex strummed the guitar with touching precision.

Then Hank the horse elegantly performed Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1, leaving the farmer misty-eyed. “Such beauty couldn’t possibly harbor guilt,” he remarked to the detective.

When their moment came, Sam and Dean the sheep burst onto the stage in glittery attire, tap-dancing with fervor. They soared and sparkled under the lights, executing breathtaking gymnastic feats. But something seemed amiss; their tapping was out of sync with the tune, erratic in its timing.

“Halt,” commanded the detective. “Arrest these two! Sam, Dean – you’re done dancing.”

Stunned, the farmer asked, “But how could you tell?”

“It’s quite evident,” the detective responded, and looking back at the sheep, he declared, “Guilty feet have got no rhythm.”
