Yoke – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence


John and Jim were helping their grandfather out on the farm. Young Jim was tending to the chickens and young John was over with the cattle. Chuckling, Jim took one of the chicken eggs and snuck up behind John.

“Hey, John!” he called, and as his brother turned, he tossed the egg at his face, where it cracked. “Ha ha! The yoke’s on you!” Jim said with a laugh as the egg ran down his brother’s face.

John scowled and wiped his face. “That’s ‘yolk’, not ‘yoke’, Jim. Get the joke right, would you?” He sighed. “Come here.”

He led Jim over to the nearby shed and grabbed a wooden crosspiece with two large collars on it. He placed one of the collars over Jim’s head. “There. Now the yoke’s on you.”
