A Pullman Anecdote

A Traveler informed a Pullman agent that he wanted a Pullman berth. "Upper or lower," asked the agent. "What's the difference?" he asked. "A difference of fifty cents," replied the agent. "The lower is higher than the upper. The higher price is for the lower. If you want it lower you'll have to go higher. We sell the upper lower than the lower. In other words, the higher the lower. Most people don't like the upper, although it is lower on account of it's being higher. When you occupy an upper you have to you have to get up to go to bed and get down to get up. You can have the lower if you pay higher. The upper is lower than the lower because it is higher. If you are willing to go higher it will be lower."

But the poor man had fainted!
