(Live)Stock Market

Farm From The Madding Crowd

A Kenyan man has offered Bill Clinton 20 cows and 40 goats in exchange for the hand of his daughter Chelsea in marriage. Godwin Chepkurgor, 39, a former councillor from Nairobi, said he made the first offer in a letter to the former US President in the year 2000 - but never received a reply.

Maybe he's waiting for Chelsea to make up her own mind? :)

That's a right hefty offer! I'd stay with it!

Daviid.........At our stockyard depending on breed,weight and age, this could be accomplished for about 20 thousand dollars! I'd say Bill spent that on 1 semester at Princeton !! :)

Seems like the fellow deserved the benefit of a reply.

Harrummph! I was only offered three pigs for my older daughter. But that was 29 years ago. Inflation...

Ha! Good deal. My Hubby was offered one measly camel for me... Hubby also paused before replying 'No'. Cheek!

So that's how it's done? No wonder my son has decided to wait.
I knew he had been spending a lot of time at the humane society. . . but keeps coming home empty handed. There are no camels and cows there!

He's lucky he didn't get a visit from the secret service.
