“Why did the cows return to the marijuana field?"/"It was the pot calling the cattle back.”

A joke on the proverb “the pot calling the kettle black” involves a different “pot” (marijuana). “Why did the cows all return to the marijuana farm? - It was the pot calling the cattle back. http://tmblr.co/Zn2Lrn1lSfd5y” was posted on Twitter by Morris Less on May 23, 2015.

Wikipedia: The pot calling the kettle black
“The pot calling the kettle black” is a proverbial idiom that may be of Spanish origin of which English versions began to appear in the first half of the 17th century. The idiom is glossed in the original sources as being used of a person who is guilty of the very thing of which they accuse another and is thus an example of psychological projection.
