JULY 1, 2003
THE COUNTRY CORNER
A rich white man in Georgia wanted to throw a party and invited all of his redneck beer-drinking buddies and neighbors. He had the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion. Everyone was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ and flirting with the women.
At the height of the party, the host called everyone around the pool and said, "I have a 10ft man-eating gator in my pool. I'll bet a
million dollars that nobody has the guts to jump in and wrestle with it."
The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a loud splash from the deep end. Everyone turned around to see Leroy, the bartender, in the pool! Leroy was fighting the gator... and kicking its butt!
He was jabbing the gator in the eyes, throwing punches, doing head butts and chokeholds, biting the gator on the tail, finally flipping it into the air like a Judo instructor. Finally Leroy strangled the gator. It floated on the surface of the pool like a used K-mart goldfish. Leroy then climbed out of the pool, to everybody's disbelieving stares.
Finally the host says, "Well, Leroy, I reckon I owe you a million dollars."
"That's okay. I don't want it." said Leroy, as he rung himself out, and headed back to his bar.
The rich man said, "But... you won the bet. I have to give you
something. How about a new Porsche then?"
"No thanks." answered Leroy, drying himself off with a bar towel.
The host said, "I insist on giving you something. I mean, that was an amazing feat, taking on that gator like that. How 'bout a Rolex? Or some stock options in my company?"
Again Leroy said no, taking a BIG swig out of a bourbon bottle.
Confused, the rich man asked, "Leroy. There's gotta be something I can do for you. What would you want? More than anything else?"
Leroy took another swig, glared around the crowd and said, "I want the name of that sum'bitch that pushed me in the pool."

I cross ocean, poor and broke, Take bus, see employment folk.
Nice man treat me good in there, Say I need to see welfare.
Welfare say, "You come no more, We send cash right to your door."
Welfare checks, they make you wealthy, Medicaid it keep you healthy!
By and by, I got plenty money, Thanks to you, American dummy.
Write to friends in motherland, Tell them 'come fast as you can.'
They come in turbans and Ford trucks, I buy big house with welfare bucks.
They come here, we live together, More welfare checks, it gets better!
Fourteen families, they moving in, But neighbor's patience wearing thin.
Finally, white guy moves away, Now I buy his house, and then I say,
"Find more aliens for house to rent." And in the yard I put a tent.
Send for family they just trash, But they, too, draw the welfare cash!
Everything is very good, And soon we own the neighborhood.
We have hobby -- it's called breeding, Welfare pay for baby feeding.
Kids need dentist? Wife need pills? We get free! We got no bills!
American crazy! He pay all year, To keep welfare running here.
We think America darn good place! Too darn good for the white man race.
If they no like us, they can scram, Got lots of room in Pakistan.
