A young fellow at the state fair stood watching an old
Indian. Above the old Indian was a sign that read, -$5.00 - If
I can't tell you where you're from, I'll pay you $50.00!"
The young man watched a cowboy approach the Indian
and ask, "Is the sign right?"
The Indian says, "yes."
The cowboy hands him a five and says, "you're on!"
The Indian looks the cowboy up and down, noticing some
cow dung on his boots and flatly states, "you're from
The cowboy shakes his head and says, "I'll be darned!
You're right!" and strolls away.
A second cowboy approaches the Indian and goes through
the same routine. Handing him the fiver, he stands and
watches as the Indian looks him up and down and notices
a bit of straw and cow dung on his boots.
The Indian says, "you're from Montana!"
The cowboy, dejected as all get out, walks away.
The young man decides he's going to give the Indian a run
for the money. He goes into the men's room, takes his boots
off, scrubs them up, dries them off, puts on a coat of polish
and approaches the Indian. He hands the Indian a five dollar
bill and says, "do your stuff!"
The Indian looks and looks, up and down, and appears to be
befuddled. The young man is now thinking he's gone one up on
the Indian.The Indian says, "You're from New Zealand!"
The young man gets really upset and can't for the life of him figure out
how the Indian could know that, so he asks, "How in the world did you know
I'm from New Zealand?"
The Indian replies, "by the wool on your zipper. "
