Jack and Jill Farmer Skits

Season 1 and 2

  • Jack Farmer (Dailan Evans) - Jack is a farmer who owns a farm which is suffering from drought. He also have a son, who sometimes appears in the background. Jack and Jill's animals have died, they have lost $50 000 in crops, they have no phones, and possibly no electricity. Jack is constantly followed by flies, even on occasions when he leaves the farm and heads into the city. He frequently throws away chances of becoming rich by ignoring the "heavy metal" in his creek (actually gold) and throwing away wine that is "like 100 years old.". Despite his misfortune, Jack's mantra is "Could be worse" and is normally interrupted by the "f***ing flies".
  • Jill Farmer (Marney McQueen) - Jill is Jack's wife and most worthy companion. She sometimes has to leave the farm and is sometimes a little inconsiderate of Jack, for example, using him as a horse and carriage.
  • Ennis (Anthony Ahern) - Whenever Jill has to leave the farm, she is replaced by a (presumably homosexual) cowboy called Ennis (Anthony Ahern), a parody of Heath Ledger's character from Brokeback Mountain, leading to many homosexual double entendres, such as "Ennis is a big fan of my back paddock" and "Are we just going to leave our rods out?" (referring to fishing rods).

Note: Marney McQueen will not be returning. Therefore, the character, Jill Farmer isn't in the second season.

Famous quotes containing the words farmer, jack and/or jill:

    As the farmer casts into the ground the finest ears of his grain, the time will come when we too shall hold nothing back, but shall eagerly convert more than we now possess into means and powers, when we shall be willing to sow the sun and the moon for seeds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    President Kennedy had a wholesome, widely discussed, and largely deserved reputation for his interest in women.... But no President, however young and energetic, could possibly have gotten around to all the ladies in Washington, New York, and Hollywood who made claim to his affections after he died.... Such was the force of Jack Kennedy and the manner of his death that anyone associated with him, even the pretenders, assumed added glamour and interest.
    Barbara Howar (b. 1934)

    Jack and Jill
    Went up the hill,
    To fetch a pail of water;
    Jack fell down,
    And broke his crown,
    And Jill came tumbling after.
    Mother Goose (fl. 17th–18th century. Jack and Jill (l. 1–6)
