Cowboy on a Plane         Back to Jokes  /  Back Home

Mary Lou sent this one:

A young, well-educated man on a business trip gets on the plane to find

 himself seated next to an older, weathered man in a western snap shirt,

 faded jeans and a cowboy hat. Thinking himself above the old cowboy, the

 young man decides to make sport of him. "You know," he says, "I've heard

 these flights go much more quickly if you strike up a  conversation with a

 fellow passenger. So, let's talk."


 The cowboy looks at him wryly and says, "Well I s'pose that'd be all right.

 What would you like to discuss?"


 "Oh, I don't know," says the young man with a hint of sarcasm, "How about

 nuclear proliferation?"


 "Hmm," says the cowboy, sensing the young man's attempt to belittle him,

 "That could be an interesting topic! But, let me ask you a question first

 --horses, cows, and deer all eat the same stuff -- grass. Yet, a deer passes

 little pellets, a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse makes muffins of

 dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"


Dumbfounded, the young man replies, "I haven't the slightest idea."


 "So tell me then," says the cowboy with a smile, "How is it that you feel

 qualified to discuss nuclear proliferation when you don't know shit?"
