Paul Bunyan's "Tall Tale"

Paul Bunyan, The Giant Lumberjack

Elmer, The Axeman

The year of the two winters it got so cold the axeman let their beards grow full length. They wrapped the beards around them for warmth. In the spring Paul cut all the beards with a large scythe. The whiskers were stacked like hay and later sold for making mattresses.
