Farmer Comeback

A wise old farmer went to town to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised in the paper for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. When the salesman handed the farmer the bill, and the farmer exclaimed, “This isn’t the price I saw!”

The salesman went on to tell the farmer how he was getting extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. and that was what raised the price up. The farmer needed the truck badly, paid the price and went home.

A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said, “My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?”

The farmer said, “Yes, I have a few cows, and I would sell for $500.00 a piece. Come look at them and take your pick.”

The salesman and his son appeared a short while later and after spending a few hours in the field checking out all the cows the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00.

The farmer said, “Now, wait a minute, that’s not the final price of the cow. You’re getting extras with it and you have to pay for that too.”

“What extras?” asked the salesman.

The farmer then handed him the following list:

BASIC COW…………………………$500.00
