One moonless night, a politician and a rancher were driving in opposite directions on a road near Austin, Texas. While crossing a bridge, they hit each other head-on, causing sever damage to both cars.
The rancher manages to crawl out of his car. He looks at his mangled car and exclaims, “Oh Lord, I’m lucky to be alive.”
The politician slithers uninjured out of his car. He, also, is lucky to have survived.
The rancher walks over to the politician and says, “Hey, man, I think this is a sign that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of being rivals.”
The politician thinks for a moment and says, “You know, you’re absolutely right! We should be friends. In fact, I’m going to see if something else survived the wreck.”
The politician pops open his trunk and removes an undamaged bottle of Johnny Walker Black Scotch. He says to the rancher, “I think this is another sign – we should toast to our newfound friendship.”
The rancher agrees, grabs the bottle and slugs down half of the bottle. The rancher hands it back to the politician and says, “Your turn!”
The politician grins, twists the cap back on the bottle and throws it off the bridge into the river. Then, he leans against to railing and says, “No thanks, I’ll just wait here until the cops arrive.”
Yes, It’s a Classic!
