Look What You Eat

A Louisiana man was having coffee and croissants with butter and jam in a diner when a Texas man, chewing gum, sat down next to him. The Louisiana man politely ignored the Texan, who, nevertheless, started up a conversation.

The Texan snapped his gum and said, "You Louisiana folk eat the whole bread?"

The Louisiana man frowned, annoyed with being bothered during his breakfast, and replied, "Of course."

The Texan blew a huge bubble. "We don't. In Texas we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle them, transform them into croissants and sell them to Louisiana." The Texan had a smirk on his face. The Louisiana man listened in silence.

The Texan persisted. "D'ya eat jelly with the bread?" Sighing, the Louisiana man replied, "Of course." Cracking his gum between his teeth, the Texan said, "We don't. In Texas, we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell it to Louisiana."

The Louisiana man then asked, "Do you have sex in Texas?" The Texan smiled and said, "Why of course we do." The Louisiana man leaned closer to him and asked, "And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?"

"We throw them away, of course," said the Texan.

Now it was the Louisiana man's turn to smile. "We don't. In Louisiana, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell them to the Texans."
