Didja hear about the impersonator who stole a horse and made a mail run? He was a phony express rider. – Jim
Some pioneers were wealthy enough to travel west on the railroad. They would load their families, all their earthly goods and even the family dog into a waggin’ train.  – Gary Hallock
Didja hear about the wit who complained that he was always being told one of his own stories? It was a plain case of the tale dogging the wag. – Jim
