We now take you to Buford, Wyoming. Two “men of the road” are sitting at their campfire arguing about this car, as it was set out by a freight on a siding for a bad bearing around a week ago. Fortunately, while the Fast Mail is also stuck in town, it’s not
blocking their view of the car
“It's a furniture car”
“no, it’s an automobile car”
“no, I say it’s a furniture car”
“you're wrong, it says right on the side it’s an automobile car”
“no you’re wrong! it says right on the side it’s a furniture car!"
Just as things are about to get heated, a 3rd man walks up
“I know, let’s ask Mike. He’ll know”
“Hey Mike, is that a furniture or an automobile car”
Mike replies, “I have no idea! It's not from around here!”
And now back to your regular programming.
