A TOURIST IN TEXAS VISITED A BAR AND REQUESTED A
"SHORT BEER." HE WAS PRESENTED WITH A HALF-
GALLON PITCHER. "I ASKED FOR A SHORT BEER," HE
COMPLAINED. "EVERYTHING IS BIG IN TEXAS," REPLIED
THE BARTENDER. "WELL, THEN, GIVE ME A WHISKEY
CHASER," HE REQUESTED. HE WAS PRESENTED WITH A
12 OZ. GLASS OF WHISKEY. "I ONLY WANTED A CHASER!"
HE PROTESTED AND THE BARTENDER REPLIED, "EVERYTHING
IN TEXAS IS BIG." AFTER A WHILE, THE TOURIST ASKED
TO BE DIRECTED TO THE RESTROOM.
"GO DOWN THE HALL AND TURN LEFT." THE TOURIST
WENT DOWN THE HALL, TURNED RIGHT, AND FELL INTO
A SWIMMING POOL. IN PANIC, THE TOURIST YELLED,
"FOR GOD'S SAKE, DON'T FLUSH IT!"
