Paul Bunyan's "Tall Tale"
Paul Bunyan, The Giant Lumberjack
Paul's Trained Ants
When Paul was short of help, he trained some enormous ants to do all kinds of logging work.
They weighed over 2,000 pounds and ate nothing but the best imported Swedish snuff.
The ants did the work of 50 ordinary men. In the winter, Paul had them fitted with warm mackinaws to keep them from hibernating.
