Drinking Beer at Texas A&M

My mom sent this joke to me months ago, but it got forgotten in my inbox. Some background for my out-of-state readers: An "Aggie" is someone who attends Texas A&M University, the rival of we University of Texas Longhorns. Aggie jokes are very popular among Texans. The Aggies are kind of the Polish of the Lone Star State.
A Texas Tech graduate, a University of Texas grad and a Texas Aggie were sitting in a bar in San Antonio. The view of the river was fantastic, the beer was ice cold and the food exceptional. "But," said the guy from Tech, "I still prefer the beer joints back in Lubbock . There's one place where the owner goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy 4 beers, he will buy the 5th."

The Longhorn said "Well, at my local bar in Austin , the owner will buy your 3rd drink after you've bought 2."

"Hell, that's nothin'," the Aggie responded. "Back in College Station there's this bar where the moment you set foot in the place they'll buy you a drink and keep them coming all night. Then when you've had enough to drink, they take you upstairs and see that you get laid. And it's all on the house."

The Red Raider and the Longhorn immediately doubted the Aggie's claims. "And this actually happened to you?" asked the Tech grad.

No, not myself personally," admitted the Aggie. "But it did happen to my sister."

"The Aggies are kind of the Polish of the Lone Star State." Geez, you've managed to insult my ENTIRE family in one fell swoop. :) At least you didn't joke about how being 1/4 Polish and 1/2 Aggie makes our son retarded, as my father likes to.....
