California vs. Texas

I don’t know where this came from.  It came to me in email.  If someone knows, I’ll be happy to give credit.  But it is very funny, and sadly true.

Governors of two states jogging with their dogs along a trail. Coyote
jumps out and starts to attack dog:

#1. Governor starts to intervene and then realizes he should stop; the
coyote is doing what is natural.

#2. Call animal control. Animal control captures coyote and spends $200
testing it for diseases and $500 relocating it.

#3. Call Vet. Veterinarian collects dead dog and spends $200 testing it
for diseases.

#4. Governor goes to hospital and spends $3500 getting checked for diseases
from the coyote and getting bite wound bandaged.

#5. Running trail gets shut down for 6 months while wildlife services
conduct a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is clear of dangerous

#6. Governor spends $50,000 and starts a coyote awareness program for
people who live in the area.

#7. State legislature spends $2 million investigating how to better handle
rabies and how to possibly eradicate it.

#8. Governor’s security agent fired for not stopping the attack and letting
the Governor try to intervene.

#9. Cost $75,000 to train new security agent.

#10. PETA protests the relocation of the coyote.

#1. Governor spends $1.23 on a .380 ACP Gold Dot Hollow Point and he and
the dog keep jogging.

And we wonder why California is BROKE.

Not to mention BROKEN.
