West Texas Lawman

West Texas Lawman

A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. He grew up big –6’2″ — and strong as a longhorn and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. When he finally became of age he applied to the only place he had dreamed of working : the West Texas Sheriff’s Department.

After a big mess of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man’s final interview.

“You’re a big strong kid and you can really shoot,” the Chief Deputy says. “So far your qualifications all look good . But we have what you call an ‘attitude suitability test’ that you must take before you can be accepted.”

“Yes, sir,” the boy replied.

“We just don’t let anyone carry our badge, son.”

“No, sir!” he answer.

Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief says:

“Take this pistol and go out and shoot:
six illegal aliens,
six lawyers,
six meth dealers,
six Muslim extremists,
and a rabbit.”

“A rabbit?” the kid replies. “Why the rabbit?”

“Great attitude, son,” says the Chief Deputy, putting the pistol back in his drawer. “When can you start?”
