Jest Texas

The Texans

On a plane, headed for Dallas-Fort Worth, two boisterous Texans are sitting in the aisle and window seats, with an old Texas Jewish man between them.

The first Texan says, "My name is Roger. I own 250,000 acres. I have 1000 head of cattle and they call my place "The Jolly Roger."

The second Texan says, "Well, you can call me John. I own 2 million acres, with 5000 head of cattle. Folks call my place Big Johns."

They both look expectantly at the old Jewish man who finally offers, "My name is Irving Mendelbaum, and I own, I tink, 500 acres. Maybe a little less."

Roger looks down at him and says, "500 Acres? What can you raise on 500 acres?"

"Feh! I don't raise notink", replies Irving.

"Well, then, what do you call it?" asked John.

"Oy, what should I call it?" replies Irving. "I guess, Downtown Dallas".
