The “Old Texan” looking to celebrate St. Patty’s Day walked into his favorite honky-tonk in Dublin, Texas
and shouts out to the cowpokes drinking at the bar. He shouted out “you bunch of cowpokes drinking all that green beers”.
I'll give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 bottles of Guinness back to back.
The room went quiet and no one takes up the “Old Texan's” offer. When Bubba O’Tool gets up and leaves the
bar. Thirty minutes later, he shows back up and taps the “Old Texan” on the shoulder. Is your bet still good?'
The “Old Texan” answers, “Yes”, and he orders the bartender to line up 10 bottles of Guinness.
Immediately, Bubba downs all 10 bottles of beer, drinking them all back to back. The other cowpokes cheer and the “Old
Texan” sits down in amazement. The “Old Texan” gives Bubba the $500 and asks, 'If ya’ll don't mind
me askin', where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone?'
Bubba replies, “Oh....” I had to go to the honky- tonk down the street to see if I could do it first.”
It was getting late and “The Old Texan” was heading for the bunk house when it dawns on him the he had more Guinness
than he should and one of his Cowboy rules is Don’t Drive if you are Drinking. So he called Peggy Sue to come get him.
They were driving back to the bunk house in Austin. Peggy Sue was driving when she got pulled over by a Texas State Patrolman,
who asks her, ’Ma’am did you know that you were speeding?'
Peggy Sue turns to her friend, “The Old Texan” and enquiries, “What did he say?” “The Old Texan”
yells out, “He says you were speeding!” The TexasState Patrolman said, “May I see your license, please ma'
am?'” Peggy Sue , once again, turns to “The Old Texan” and says, “What did he say?”
more, “The Old Texan” shouts out, “'He wants to see your license!” Peggy Sue gives the Texas State
Patrolman, her driving license. The Texas State Patrolman, looks at her license , “'I see you are from Austin. I spent
some time there once and had the worst date I have ever had.”
For the final time, Peggy Sue turns to “The Old Texan” and asks, “What did he say?'
“The Old Texan” yells very loudly, “'He thinks he knows you!”
Finally the “Old Texan” made it to the bunk house and looks back on the evening of St. Patty’s Day, as he
was laying down in bed to sleep off all the Guinness's that he drank. His parting words where..
“May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.”
