"But a waiting machine?"
"Exactly, Dud. Invent something small that a man can carry with
him that will keep him busy doing something relaxing and fun while
he waits for his wife. I guarantee you riches beyond your dreams."
Dud sat quietly for a minute, basking in promised wealth.
"I've got it! A wristwatch!"
"We have wristwatches," said Bert.
"Not," said Dud, "that you can watch a football game on."
"True," said Doc. "I like the way you think."
"Maybe you can have a selection of channels on it," Steve said.
"If you don't like football, you can tune in rodeo."
"Or the Miss America Pageant," chimed in Bert.
From such innocent conversations by members of the world dilemma
think tank at the Mule Barn come the great inventions of the world.
