A cowboy rode into a town. He fastened his big fine horse to a post outside a rough bar, kicked open the bar door, walked up to the bar and asked for a beer. When he had finished his drink, he went back outside, only to find that someone had stolen his horse.
The cowboy went back into the bar, got his gun out and fired three shots into the ceiling.
“Which one of you dirty no-good dogs has stolen my horse?” he shouted, and then he fired three more shots into the bottles behind the bar.
“OK, then,” he growled, looking very mean, “I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to order myself another beer. I’m going to drink my beer and then I’m going to go back outside. If my horse isn’t back where I left him, I’ll have to do what I did when the same thing happened in Texas.”
The other customers in the bar looked at each other and shivered – they were terrified. When the cowboy had finished his second beer, he went back outside. Sure enough, the thief had brought the horse back and tied it to the post, exactly where the cowboy had left it.
The cowboy got back on his horse. The barman went up to him and asked in a nervous voice, “Er, before you go, please tell us, what exactly happened in Texas?”
“I had to walk home,” said the cowboy.
