Paul Bunyan's "Tall Tale"

Paul Bunyan, The Giant Lumberjack

Lucy, The Purple Cow

Lucy, the Purple Cow, was a champion producer and furnished Paul's dairy products. She was contented so long as the grass was green, so in the winter Paul fitted her with green glasses to make the snow look like grass.

The year of the two winters it got so cold her milk turned to ice cream before it hit the pail. That was the winter Paul invented the double-deck ice cream cone.
