Here is a joke I received via email. I adjusted the final pricing a bit. Ha!
Farmer Brown Buys a Truck
There was a man, Farmer Brown, who had recently bought a
truck and found that the "basic price" was only the
beginning. Once the salesman had added on all the extras --
towing package, toolbox, fifth-wheel attachment, etc. -- the
price was quite a bit higher. Well, by a strange turn of
fate, that same salesman stopped by Farmer Brown’s farm one day to
buy a cow. The dealer examined the herd, picked out a likely
specimen, and asked about the price.
"That's a hundred-dollar cow," Farmer Brown replied directly.
"That's fair enough," said the salesman. "I'll take her."
"Well, now, that's the basic price," Brown added, getting
out pencil and paper. "There are one or two extras, of
course." He made a few notes and handed the paper to the
dealer. Here is the final invoice:
Basic cow: $100
Two-tone exterior: $45
Storage compartment and dispensing device: $60
Four spigots @ $10 each: $40
Genuine cowhide upholstery: $75
Dual horns @ $7.50 each: $15
Automatic fly-swatter: $35
Food to fertilizer converter: $50
Lawn Mower attachment: $30
