The Brown Paper Bag

by Joe Cassady

A farmer is driving into town to pick up supplies. He sees an American Indian on the side of the road hitchhiking. The farmer pulls over and offers the Indian a ride.

The farmer tries to strike up a conversation with the Indian, but he is a man of few words.

A little while later, the Indian looks at the brown paper bag in the front seat between them and asks, “Mmm, what in bag?”

The farmer says, “It’s a bottle of wine that I got for my wife.”

The Indian thinks for a moment, looks at the farmer and says, “Mmm, good trade!”
