Talking about the town of West Paris, Maine. West Paris Maine
has the city limits sign on both sides of the same sign. That's
a pretty small town. One day they had some Texas politicians
come into town. Now everything in Texas is big, huge, and the
townspeople are really proud of their town. Now the Texas
politicians pretty much puts everyone from West Paris Maine down.
These Maine people were quite upset. So the Maine people tried
to impress the Texas Politicians, so they took them to the West
Paris Maine town hall. Now the town hall is the biggest room in
the entire county. The Texas politician said "We have outhouses
in Texas that are bigger than this place." That really
infuriated the townspeople and one of the Maine people said, "I
guess you need them."

James Callow comment: Mark got his Maine jokes by visiting Maine.
