A Texan dies and goes to hell. While down there the Devil notices that the Texan is not suffering like the rest. He checks the gauges and sees that it's 90 degrees and about 80% humidity. So he goes over to the Texan and asks why he's so happy. The Texan says, "I like it here. The temperature is just like Texas in June. The Devil isn't happy with the Texan's answer and decides to get him, so he goes over and turns up the temperature to 100 degrees and the humidity to 90%. After turning everything up he goes looking for the Texan. He finds him standing around unbuttoning his shirt, just as happy as can be. The Devil quizzes the Texan again as to why he's so happy. The Texan says, "This is even better. It's like Texas in July." The Devil, now upset, decides to really make the Texan really suffer. He goes over to the controls and turns the heat up to 120 degrees and the humidity to 100%. "Now lets see what the Texan is up to," he says. So he goes looking for the Texan. He finds him taking his shirt off, even happier then before. The Devil can't figure it out. He asks the Texan why he's happy now. The Texan replies, "This is great, it's just like Texas in August." The Devil says, "That's it, I'll get this guy." He goes over and turns the temperature down to a freezing 25 degrees. "Let's see what the Texan has to say about this." The Devil looks around and finds the Texan jumping up and down for joy and yelling.....

A woman from Texas and a woman from New York meet at a party. The woman from Texas said to the woman from New York, "Hi! Where y'all from?" The woman from New York replies, "Where I come from we don't end our sentences with prepositions." So, the woman from Texas says, "Fine! Where y'all from, bitch?!"
A few minutes later, the woman from New York meets the woman from Texas' husband. She's steamed at the Texas broad, so she asks, in a very suggestive voice, "Is there anything I can do for you, handsome?" "Welllll," replies the Texan, "I sure could use a piece of ass." The woman from New York nods, takes the Texan into the bedroom, takes off all of her clothes, takes off all of his clothes, and engages in a hot session of mad passionate lovemaking with him. After they are done, she again says suggestively, "Now, handsome, is there anything else I can do for you?" "Well, ma'am," he replies, "I could still use that piece of ass for my drink."

In a small Texas town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets. Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You darn Yankees never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible. She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled thru some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar."

Former Texas Governor Ross Sterling (about 80 years ago) inadvertently left his deer rifle in his office at the State Capitol. When he discovered the error, he called his administrative assistant, Pat Daugherty, long distance to make sure Daugherty found the rifle and brought it to the ranch. But when Sterling placed the call, there was so much static on the rural line that he and Daugherty could hardly hear each other. Sterling kept saying, "Pat, this is the Governor. The Governor! When you come to the ranch tomorrow, bring my gun. It's at the Capitol" And Daugherty would say, "What? What? Who is this?" Exasperated, Sterling would repeat the request, talking slowly and loudly into the receiver, but Daugherty could hear only part of what he was saying. Over and over, Daugherty would say, "Hello! We have a bad connection. What do you want?" Finally Sterling became exasperated and -- according to Ferguson -- reverted to his old, country self. He lost his temper and shouted, "Pat, now you listen to me! And write this down! This is the GOVERNOR. When you come to the ranch tomorrow, BRING MY GUN. G-U-N. G as in Jesus, 'U' as in onion, and 'N' as in pneumonia! Gun, dammit!"
A Frenchman, an Italian, and a Texan were discussing love-making.

"Ah, last night I made love to my wife five times," the Italian responded, "and this morning she made me a wonderful omelet and told me she could never love another man."
When the Texan remained silent, the Frenchman smugly asked, "And how many times did you make love to your wife last night?" "Once." he replied. "Only once?!" the Italian arrogantly snorted. "And what did she say to you this morning?"

Ah gets in mah car at first light and I drive all day and know what? Ah don't get to the other side of mah ranch until dusk." The cab driver looked at him in the mirror and said, " Yeah, I know how that is. I used to have a car like that, myself."
