Maxwell House banking

Maxwell House banking: Ole John Kelly Riley opened a checking account at the Hominy Holler Bank recently. They gave him 10 temporary checks. Bank called a few days later, said he was overdrawn. I can’t be, he said, I still have 3 checks left. He didn’t need that kind of hassle, so he went home, and like his pappy, he buried his money in a Maxwell House can, in the backyard. (the James gang doesn’t need to know this)

Huckleberry Mountain Airlines is now flying out of Hoodoo Holler International Airport and Flea Market. To get to our modern airport just drive through downtown Hoodoo Holler and turn left at the barbecue shack, turn right on the first dirt road, you can’t miss it. We will fly anywhere decent folks want to go. We keep prices low by dispensing with rules and fancy stuff.

I would like to thank everyone for losing an hour for the war effort. General Washington’s troops need all the whale oil they can get if we are to prevail against the Redcoats. (we might even spare a whale or 2) Ben Franklin thanks you.

Hey, General Washington I don’t wanna go…

Hey, Ahab, I think I see a whale…
