Paul Bunyan's "Tall Tale"
Paul Bunyan, The Giant Lumberjack
Johnny Inkslinger, The Head Clerk
Johnny Inkslinger was the camp's head clerk. He invented bookkeeping about the same time that Paul invented logging. He kept track of everything down to the last bean.
He used a pen (his own invention) connected to a barrel by a hose. In one week he saved twelve barrels of ink by not crossing his t's or dotting his i's.
