My Dad always sends me amusing chain emails, and a lot of them have to do with the government... or Texas... or both... but I usually don't read 'em (lazy is I~), but this time I got a look at the most recent one sitting in my inbox...

And I felt like sharing it with y'all because it's 1) pretty true & 2) somewhat amusing.


California vs Texas


California

Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks dog.

#1. Governor starts to intervene, reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

#2. He calls animal control. Animal control captures coyote and spends $200 testing it for diseases and $500 upon relocating it.

#3. He calls veterinarian. Vet collects dead dog and spends $200 testing it for diseases.

#4. Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting bite wound bandaged.

#5. Running trail gets shut down for 6 months while wildlife services conduct a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is clear of dangerous animals.

#6. Governor spends $50,000 of state funds implementing a "coyote awareness" program for residents of the area.

#7. State legislature spends $2 million investigating how to better handle rabies and how to possibly eradicate the disease.

#8. Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack and for letting the Governor intervene.

#9. Cost: $75,000 to train new security agent.

#10. PETA protests the coyote relocation and files suit against the state.


Texas

#1. Governor shoots coyote and keeps jogging.
Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge. Buzzards eat dead coyote.

Any wonder why California is broke?

Indeed a pretty funny comparison but still if the texan governor misses the coyote a few times he'll have lost a bit more.

....Things like this make my day. I have so many relatives in Texas who'd get a kick out of this.

Except that the governor of California just so happens to be Conan the Cimmerian. He wouldn't even waste the $0.50 on the bullet. He'd just punch the coyote to death. O:<
