During a terrible storm, all the highway signs were covered with snow. The following spring, the state decided to raise all the signs twelve inches at a cost of six million dollars.

"That's an outrageous price!" said a local farmer, "But I guess we're lucky the state handled it instead of the federal government."

A friend asked, "Why's that?"

The farmer said, "Because knowing the federal government, they would have decided to lower the highways."
