Bringing The Bull Home
Ole and Lena's bull took sick and died, so they needed to go to the auction to buy a new one. Ole had to get the crops in and couldn't leave the farm, so Lena took the train to the city to buy a bull. If she was successful, she would take the train back to the farm, then she and Ole would go to town with the truck to pick up their newly purchased bull.

The bidding was furious at the livestock auction, and Lena found herself bidding on the last remaining bull. It took everything she had but ten cents, but she was finally the successful bidder.

Unfortunately, the train home was fifty cents. 'Please, Mr. Conductor, couldn't you make an exception just once?' pleaded Lena. 'Sorry lady,' he replied, 'but you can send your husband a telegram to tell him your problem. The office is just down the street.'

At the Telegraph office, Lena asked, 'Mister, how many words can I send to my husband for a dime?' 'It's ten cents a word,' the clerk answered. Lena pondered her dilemma, then finally said, 'OK, here's the message; 'COMFORTABLE'.

(Get it? 'Come-for-the-bull' ... ha ha)
