Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family farm. Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble. In order to keep the bank from repossessing the farm, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock. Upon leaving for the auctions, the brunette tells her sister, "When I get there, if I decide to buy the bull, I'll fax you to drive out after me and transport it home."

The brunette arrives at the auctions, inspects the bulls, and decides she wants to buy one. Eventually she finally gets a prize bull for £499.00.

After buying the bull, she drives to the town to send her sister a fax to tell her the news. She walks into a facsimile bureau, and says, "I want to send a facsimile to my sister telling her that I've bought a bull for our farm. I need her to hitch the horsebox to our pickup and drive out here so we can take it home."

The fax operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then adds, "It's £2.50 a fax."

Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette only has £1.00 left. She explains this to the operator and he said he would let her send one word for the £1.00 she has remaining. She realises that she'll only be able to send her sister one word.

After thinking for a few minutes, she nods, and says, "I want you to send her the word "comfortable". The facsimile operator shakes his head. "How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to transport that bull back to your farm if you send her the word, comfortable?"

The brunette explains, "My sister's blonde. The word is big, she'll read it slow and read it as com for da bul."
