Script Details

Herman and Donna Ostry had a farm just outside of Bruno, Nebraska . . . Population 143.

Farmer Herman had a beautiful piece of land and lots of animals.

AND he had a barn with a big, BIG problem.

You see, every time it rained, Farmer Herman’s barn would fill up with water. And a barn that fills up with water can’t really be used for anything.

He didn’t know what to do.

One night at dinner he made a joke at the dinner table: “If we had enough people, we could just pick the barn up and move it.”

Everyone laughed.

The next day, Farmer Herman’s son, Mike went out to the barn and started measuring and counting the boards. He added it all up and figured out that the barn weighed over 16,000 pounds.

That’s REALLY heavy . . .
