Can You Believe This?

Fools! The neighbors are all a bunch of fools. They've all been talking about this guy who's passing out loads of money for free. Reportedly, not only is this feller handing out wheelbarrows full of money, but he's gonna keep on a-sending us money - enough money to pay a big chunk of our mortgages every year - cuz we're royalty (or some such thing).

What kind idiot would fall for that? First of all, he ain't gonna pay off my mortgage - I ain't got any danged mortgage to pay off. Second thing, I ain't royalty. And third, who's stupid enough to believe that some feller with a crazy name has so much money that he just has to give it all away? But there all the neighbors are - down at the armory - all lined up to have this "Barnett Shale" character hand them his rubber checks.

Fools I tell ya. The neighbors is all a buncha dern fools!

So, was it your neighborhood that voted on $22k per acre?

Nah, just a meager $17,000 + 25% royalty.

Mary said she and Tom got four-thousand dollars ! And some fool on Live Oak got ten-thousand. Wow.

When we signed the going rate was $4000 an acre. At least we got 25%.
