A young cowboy from Prescott, AZ walks into
the White Cafe in Winslow, AZ. He sits at the counter
and notices an old cowboy with his arms folded, staring
blankly at a full bowl of chili.
After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at
it, the young cowboy bravely asks the old cowpoke,
"If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?"
The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the
young wrangler, and in his best cowboy manner says,
"Nah, go ahead."
Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides the
bowl over to his place and starts spooning it in with
delight. He gets nearly down to the bottom and notices
a dead mouse in the chili. The sight was shocking and
he immediately barfs up the chili into the bowl.
The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got, too."
