Ma and Pa were discussing Ma's desire for a new cookbook.
"Ye don't need any such thing as another cookbook," says Pa. ""I got a cookbook once, but I could never do anything with it."
"I'm growin tired of your uppity ways, Pa," says Ma. "Too much fancy work in it, eh?"
"That's a natural fact. Every one of the recipes began the same way - 'Take a clean dish'".
