    [FONT=arial,helvetica]A farmer went to town to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised in the paper for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. The salesman handed the farmer the bill, and the farmer declared, "This isn't the price I saw!"

    The salesman went on to tell the wise old farmer how he was getting extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. And that was what took the price up. The farmer needed the truck badly, paid the price and went home.

    A few months later, the salesman called the farmer and said, "My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?"

    The farmer said, "Yes, I have a few cows, and I would sell for $500.00 each. Come look at them and take your pick."

    The salesman said he and his son would be right out. After spending a few hours in the field checking out all the farmer's cows, the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00.

    The farmer said--------"Now, wait a minute, that's not the final price of the cow. You're getting extras with it and you have to pay for those too."

    "What extras?" asked the surprised salesman.

    Below is the list the farmer gave the salesman for the final price of the cow..........

    BASIC COW........................... $500.00
    Two tone exterior..................... $ 45.00
    Extra stomach............................ $ 75.00
    Product storing equipment....... $ 60.00
