The Alamo is pretty cool by Neil
Lots of people, but a really interesting place. Also went on the river walk – very worthwhile. I heard a joke the other day…about the Alamo. Actually it is about…ummm…well…I’ll just tell it.
A U.N. Mission plane is flying from New York to London, full of U.N. dignitaries. The pilot gets on the intercom and says, “it appears we do not have enough fuel to make it to Heathrow. We need to lose some weight.”
So…the flight crew throws all the baggage out. The pilot says, “that’s good, but we need to lose more.” So…the flight crew unlatches all the seats and throws them out. Everyone has to stand.
The pilot comes on the intercom again and says…“we need to lose just a little more weight to make it to Heathrow.”
So…a Frenchman opens the hatch and says, “I will sacrifice my life for the lives of all on board…VIVE LA FRANCE!!!” And he jumps out the hatch.
The a Brit says, “I have great pride in giving my life for all on board.” Then he shouts, “LONGLIVETHEQUEEN!!!” And he, too, jumps out the hatch.
Then an American grabs a Mexican dignitary, and says, “as a red blooded American, I will sacrifice for all on board as well.” And he throws the Mexican dignitary out the hatch while shouting, “REMEMBERTHEALAMO!!!”over 7 years ago
