A New York family bought a ranch out west where they intended to raise cattle. Friends came to visit and asked if the ranch had a name. ''Well,'' said the would-be-cattleman. ''I wanted to call it the Bar-J, my wife favored the Suzy-Q, one son liked the Flying-W, and the other son wanted the Lazy-Y. So, we're calling it the Bar-J-Suzy-Q-Flying-W-LazyY.''
''But, where are all your cattle?''
''None have survived the branding.''

the world... nutty.
