Hung For Cattle Rustling

The lynch mob brought the three men to a tree right at the edge of the Rio Grande, with the idea that when each man had died, they would cut the rope and he would drop into the river and drift out of sight.

The lynch mob put the first cowboy in the noose, but he was so sweaty and greasy that he slipped out, fell in the river and swam to freedom.

So, they tied the noose around the second cowboy’s head.

He was also really sweaty and greasy, and he too oozed out of the rope, dropped into the river and got away.

The lynch mob were becoming really frustrated by now, as they dragged the third Texan to the scaffold.

Suddenly, he resisted, and said, “Please! Would yaw’l tighten that noose a little bit? I can’t swim!”
