The Bus Travelled


A man from Ireland was on a bus tour of the United States. As the bus travelled for miles and miles through desert landscape and oil fields, he asked the guide: “Where are we now?”

The guide said proudly: “We’re in the great state of Texas.”

“It’s certainly big,” mused the Irishman.

“It’s so big,” added the guide, “that your County Kerry would fit into the smallest corner of it.”

“Yes,” smiled the Irishman, “and wouldn’t it do wonders for Texas!”
