AT & T say they may go to only the telephone part of their company unless congress approves their request for help for their sinking telegraph division.
"Both the Congo and Somalia say they are interested in purchasing the telegraph division but have very little funding", stated Wallace Williams that's President of the Telegraph division which has lost money steadily every year since 1955.
"Also, Nigeria is seriously thinking about making an offer as they think they know how to market the product to scattered individuals around the world."
"However, we could keep the AT & T with the second T if congress will loan us $5,000,000 for our 35 scattered employees around the third world and we could keep the Telegraph division running for another 25 years."
Meanwhile, Cherokee Nation says they are definitely NOT interested in the product "since we lost our asses on that 'Pony Express' thing some time ago, that they bought from Brigham Young.
"That story has been handed down for many generations", stated Red Claude, the current leader. "He told us wives could be bought and mailed by pony."
In the meantime, don't be surprised that your telephone bill will be arriving in the near future with only "A & T" on it.
