Message Parlor

An old Redneck woman in the West Virginia hills received a letter from her grandniece, who'd gone off to the big city to seek her fortune.
Puzzled by the writing and the contents, she read to her husband, "Betty Jo says here that she's got herself a job in a... a... a... well, it must be a 'Message' parlour."

"I reckon city folks must leave word there for their neighbors and kinfolk. Them not having back fences and all," her husband said. "Does Betty Jo say how much they's a payin' her?"

"Well, that's the part I can't make out. For the life of me, Paw, she says she gets some $35 for a hand delivered message and $60 if she *blows* it to them!"
