Speaking Of Texas...

Here's a joke for "y'all"... It was sent to me by someone that considers himself "part Texan" since he lived there for a few years as a kid, so don't accuse me of being anti-Texan. It's funny partly because I can just imagine someone actually trying this!

Only a Texan could think of this....from the state where drunk driving is considered a sport, comes this true story.

Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Bandera, Texas. After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car which he fell into. -- -- He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine, dry summer night) -- -- flicked the blinkers on, then off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights. -- He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patron vehicles left. At last, the parking lot empty, he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road.

The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at all! Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken."

"I doubt it," said the truly proud Texan. Tonight I'm the designated decoy.

The joke is a classic. But, you actually have to understand the term "y'all". Check where the punctuation is. DO NOT EVER BLOW THAT ONE AGAIN. Although I am not sure if it is a contraction for 'you all', it is imperative that you get the spelling right.

However, you get kudos for the term "blinkers".

Heh...actually Two Dogs, that was a typo believe it or not. I do know it's supposed to be "y'all". I will fix it for you. The blinkers part is just part of the email I was sent. I never call them blinkers. It seems strange to call them that, though I know some people do.

Everyone down here calls 'em blinkers. I don't know why, I just fall into line and follow the crowd. However, turn indicator just sounds stupid.

Erik Grow said...

I have always called them "turn signals", not blinkers, not turn indicators.

Two Dogs said...

Embrace "blinker" Erik. It's the right thing to do.

Turn signals? what are you too good for us southern bumpkins "blinkers"? ok just kidding. But come on... turn signal is just so long... it's so much easier, and a lot funnier to say "blinker"... just think... you could skip down the road yelling "blinker, blinker, blinker... blinker-doodle..." *stares at himself in amazement at his own stupidity....* i gotta get out of this house for awhile....
