|Matt and Mike went shopping for cows. When they each had found the cow they wanted, they were in a quandary. 'How will we tell which cow is yours and which is mine?' asked Matt.|
'You crop your cow's ears, and I'll leave mine as they are!' answered Mike.
'No! That would hurt your cow!' said Matt, 'I'll cut my cow's tail, and you keep your cow's tail long.'
'No, no!' shouted Mike,' cows need their tails long for swatting flies!'
'I know!' exclaimed Matt, 'Branding! I'll put a big 'X' on the rear of my cow, and you put a big 'Y' on the front of your cow.'
'No, no, no! My cow is too beautiful to mark up like that!' yelled Mike.
'I've got it!' Matt said. 'You take the black one, I'll take the white one!'
