I was hanging out at a hotel here in Vegas when the NFR (National Finals Rodeo) was in town. The whole city is loaded with rednecks for about a week in the beginning of every December. I was walking into a bathroom when an older gentleman in full cowboy gear was walking out. His thumbs were in his belt and he turns to his other cowboy buddy and says this classic:
"Whale Al Be Godaymned. How'd dat wall toilet know I was done pissin? "
For anyone who needs clarification, the "wall toilet" was a urinal, and it knew he was "done pissin" because it had an automatic flush sensor.
