KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) – A northeast Missouri farming couple knows the government won’t be giving them a bailout like so many big companies are getting, so they issued their own.

Dennis and Janet Garlock (GAHR’-lahk) of rural Adair County have placed a large hay bale at the end of their driveway with a sign proclaiming: “I got my bale out!”

The stunt has their neighbors talking and a lot of heads turning.

Some of the Amish in the area apparently are confused by the sign. One inquired whether the sign means the bale is for sale.
