"Did I ever tell you that "Tex" Reynolds was from Texas, the Lone Star State?"
"Well that certainly a surprise. How long did it take you and the guys at the bar to figure that out?"
"Didn't have to. He told us, himself. Anyways, Tex and his wife, Houston, went on a trip to Europe and he said that he somehow offended the French!"
"They're easy to offend, Tex told us. This one French guy came up to them in Paris and pointed out the Eiffel Tower to them."
"There is only one such a tower and it is in France", the man told him.
"So Tex agreed he'd never seen one that big. Then he asked the French man 'How many barrels do you get out of that thing a day? I bet it's a bunch!"
"Nothing. The guy got really red in his face and slapped Tex. I guess that's like a handshake here so Tex slapped him silly. Then Houston slapped him when he staggered up."
