    The Old Cowboy

    I don't usually post things like this, but this old one had me rolling...


    A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM TEXAS, COUNSELED HIS GRANDSON THAT IF HE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HIS OATMEAL EVERY MORNING.
    THE GRANDSON DID THIS RELIGIOUSLY TO THE AGE OF 103, WHEN HE DIED.
    HE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN, 30 GRANDCHILDREN, 45 GREAT-GRAND-CHILDREN, 25 GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND A 15-FOOT HOLE WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE.

    I like it! I don't know what I was expecting for the punch line, but I know for sure that wasn't it.
