One day as tornado season was about to begin, a weatherman was sent to Missouri to interview the locals about how they coped when they knew there was a bad storm coming and to see how the weather service could be of best use to them.
The interview with one of the local “Hillbillies” went something like this…
Hillbilly: “We don’t need you here man, we have the best way to tell the weather”.
Weatherman: “Oh? How do you do that?”
Hillbilly: “We have a bucket”.
Weatherman: “What if it rains?”
Hillybilly: “The bucket is full of water”
Weatherman: “What if it snows?”
Hillybilly: “The bucket has snow in it”.
By this time, the weatherman is getting rather frustrated at the attitude of the cocky hillbilly.
Weatherman: “What if there is strong wind then?”
Hillybilly: “The bucket is tipped over”.
Hillybilly: “The bucket floats down the road”.
At this point, the weatherman is rather more than just frustrated and is getting a just a little angry. He just thought of a way that he could stump him…
Weatherman: “So, what if there is a tornado?”
Hillybilly: “A weatherman shows up!”.
