I love Texas!

Recommended Posts

Among the many things I love about Texas and living here I came across this joke that just further supported my beliefs.  If you live in Texas you will really appreciate this.

Church Phone]

A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about churches around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and started working east from there.

Going to a very large church he began taking photographs and making notes.

He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a

sign that read, "$10,000 per minute."

Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that the golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to Heaven, and if

he pays the price, he can talk directly to God.

The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way.

As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver,

Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found more such phones

with the same sign and the same explanation from each pastor.

Finally, the man arrived in the great state of Texas. Upon entering a

church, behold, he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS time, the sign

read: "Calls: 25 cents"!? Fascinated, the man asked to speak with the

pastor.

"Reverend, I have been in cities all across the country and in each church I

have found this golden telephone, and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven, and that I could use it to talk to God.... But in 20 other churches,

the cost was $10,000 per minute. Your sign says 25 cents per call. ....Why is that?

The pastor, smiling kindly, replied: "Son, you're in Texas now and it's a

local call."

When I heard the joke many years ago, it was in a football recruiting format and the call was free...from the University of Notre Dame.

North Dallas, in the Richardson area. I wasnt born here though.  I am a country boy trapped in this concrete jungle, until I get done with college.  Only one more semester baby!

I didnt realize the joke was that old.  That was the first time I heard it and I just died laughing!

That's kind of of the way I feel about Alabama.  I was born in Texas and moved to Alabama when I was 21. Took about 20 seconds to fall in love with it and the school. I miss it.

You Texans might want to be a little more specific on your definition of local.  I've been to Lubbuck. :)

Very interesting, but the blog failed to mention

that there wouldn't be a Texas without some help

from the Tennessee Volunteers!

I noticed that too, David Crockett and his men were a big help.
