The New West

A kid walked up to a guy wearing a 10-gallon hat, leather vest, leather chaps, and sneakers. The kid asked him, “Mr. Cowboy, why do you wear that big hat?”

The cowboy replied, “Well, son, the big hat protects me from the hot sun and driving rain, and at night I put it over my face when I sleep on the range, so it protects me then, too.”

“Why do you wear that leather vest?”

“It also helps to keep the weather off me, and it has pockets where I can keep my valuables.”

“Well, why do you wear leather chaps?”

“They protect my legs when I’m driving my horse through mesquite and cactus.”

“Well, Mr. Cowboy,” the kid finally asked, “Why do you wear sneakers?”

“That’s so somebody won’t think I’m a damn truck driver!”
