Politics in Texas

A herd of cowboy hats in a Cadillac convertible with Bull horns on the hood drive up shooting shotguns in the air, and screaming "whiskey whiskey whiskey!!!"

>ask lady in the purse about glass of water You don't see the lady in the purse!
>open purse
Opening your purse reveals, besides the ordinary fare, an unopened envelope and a tiny lady.
"What do you want now?!" Screams the lady, "you're letting the cold air in."
