The Big Vacation!
A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation. The Aussie tour bus driver shows off a big Australian wheat field. Texan says, "Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as big in Texas".
They drive by ranch and the Aussie tour bus driver shows a large herd of cattle. The Texan immediately says, "We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows in Texas.”
The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when the Texan sees a herd of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asks, "And what are those"? The Aussie tour bus driver replies with a convincing look, "grasshoppers!"
