    In the shadows behind a scope.
    A local bean farmer was blessed with a wonderful crop this
    fall. In fact he had so many beans, he needed to unload them
    somehow. With all the hoopla about the upcoming Super Bowl,
    he decided that would be a good venue to reach more people.

    With this in mind he went to the local TV station to speak with
    the advertising manager. The farmer said, "I would like to
    purchase a minute or two during the Super Bowl to advertise
    my wonderful beans. I have such a bountiful crop of beans of
    all kinds; pinto beans, lima beans, navy beans, red beans..."

    The sales manager said, "Ok, Ok, I get the message. And what
    would you be able to pay for this amount of prime advertising
    time?"

    The farmer scratched his beard, looked off, then said, very
    solemnly, "I'd be willing to go as high as $300 to reach those
    folks."

    "$300?" the manager yelled, "You must be out of your mind!!!
    The current sponsors pay through the nose to get the exposure
    of the Super Bowl! For example, the makers of Kotex pay
    MILLIONS of dollars to reach the audience!"

    The farmer very evenly replied, "I'm sure that's right. But
    those people are out for blood. I'm just farting around."
