Uncle Fossill called me the other day and He was all excited about a new bussiness endeavor.He said "Boy " (Uncle Fossill always calls me Boy,and never by my given name) Boy he said,I been a reading bout them old oil wells theys a diggin out yonder in Texas and I have decided that i am a gonna drill for oil right here in old Podunk Tennessee down yonder on my lower 40 and see what I can find !
Uncle Fossill,I said,I have never heard of any oil being found in Tennessee.
About a week later Uncle Fossill called me again and I asked him about the Success of his oil venture.I was astounded to hear him tell me that He was producing 50 barrells a day ! Uncle Fossill,I said,are you telling me that you struck oil on your property and that your well is producing 50 barrels of oil a day!? No,Boy,He said,I did'nt strike no oil,but I am producing 50 empty barrells a day for ole Ed mussilesimdth's general store,he needs them for next spring's maple syrup storage.
The End :) :) and :)
