The Texas Cowboy


A young cowboy from Texas goes off to college. Half way through the semester, he has foolishly squandered all his money. He calls home.

 “Dad,” he says, “You won’t believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here in Austin that will teach our dog, Ol’ Blue how to talk!”

 “That’s amazing,” his Dad says. “How do I get Ol’ Blue in that program?”

 “Just send him down here with $1,000″ the young cowboy says. “I’ll get him in the course.”

 So, his father sends the dog and $1,000.

 About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again runs out.. The boy calls home.

 “So how’s Ol’ Blue doing son?” his father asks.

 “Awesome, Dad, he’s talking up a storm,” he says, “but you just won’t believe this – they’ve had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!”

 “Read!?” says his father, “No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?”

 “Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.”

 The money promptly arrives. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read.

So he shoots the dog.

When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited.

“Where’s Ol’ Blue? I just can’t wait to see him read something and talk!”

“Dad,” the boy says, “I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ol’ Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal , like he usually does.

Then Ol’ Blue turned to me and asked, “So, is your daddy still messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?”

The father exclaimed, “I hope you shot that son of a bitch before he talks to your Mother!

” I sure did, Dad!”

“That’s my boy!”

The kid went on to law school, and now serves in Washington D.C. as a Congressman.

    Nowadays, all a school like that would have to teach a dog to say and read is: Israel.

    Israel, Israel, Israel… all for Israel.

    What is the point of this??!!

    –the point is self explanatory–someone who is greedy for money figures out a way to get what he wants, then covers his tracks and then becomes a politician.

    This sure reminds me of Bush Jr. in Texas as a spoiled little monster sociopath liar like his Daddy George H.W. Bush Sr.

    This was/is the disgrace to all Texas… and in the 90’s the same thug actions like Florida in 2000 on the Vote Fraud going on and Voters being turned away like when Bush Jr. was running to be Gov. there in Texas and former Texas Gov. Ann Richards forced under threat to back down so Daddy Bush’s little dope fiend Yale Cheerleader and Skull & Bones #322 boy Georgie Jr. could be the Gov. in Texas and begin the BUsh Clan Trademark vast corruption and disgrace there dating back to Nazi-bpyyy Prescott Bush… I was there then and saw it in the 90’s and left America as expatriate very sick of Bush Sr. the puppet-master of Bohemian Grove boyyy Ronnie Ray-Gun… then I was back in Florida in 2000 in USA and witnessed the Voter FRAUD there in Hillsborough County in Tampa and Orange County in Orlando just like the thug action in Texas in the 90’s… and I knew the USA was going down the s**tter bad with a Bush Scum again in the Oval Office as if disgrace in Texas wasn’t bad enough.

    What Satire full of much Truth the NeoCons and their Fascist ‘Turd Blossom’ Karl Rove mentality don’t like to hear. Thanks for the memories… Keep it Real.

    I don’t think there is a politician in D.C. smart enough to come up with a story like that. I mean, they can’t even come up with a Global Cooling story.
