Quick Think­ing

A blonde and a red­head have a ranch. They have just lost their bull. The women need to buy an­other, but only have $500. The red­head tells the blonde, “I will go to the mar­ket and see if I can find one for un­der that amount.

“If I can, I will send you a tele­gram.” She goes to the mar­ket and finds one for $499.

Hav­ing only one dol­lar left, she goes to the tele­graph of­fice and finds out that it costs one dol­lar per word. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer.

Fi­nally, she tells the tele­graph op­er­a­tor to send the word “com­fort­able.” Skep­ti­cal, the op­er­a­tor asks, “How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?” The red­head replies, “She’s a blonde so she reads slow: ‘Come for ta bull.’”

Where are we?

A hus­band and wife were driv­ing through Louisiana. As they ap­proached Natchi­toches, they started ar­gu­ing about the pro­nun­ci­a­tion of the town. They ar­gued back and forth, then they stopped for lunch. At the counter, the hus­band asked the blonde wait­ress, “Be­fore we or­der, could you please set­tle an ar­gu­ment for us? Would you please pro­nounce where we are very slowly?” She leaned over the counter and said, “Bur­rrg­errr Ki­i­ing.”.
