Speaking German IN Texas:

In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels , where there is a large German-speaking population. One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher’s stock pond.
The rancher rolled down the window and shouted:

“Sehr angenehm! Trink das Wasser nicht. Die kuehe haben darein geschissen.”
Which means: “Glad to meet you! Don’t drink the water. The cows have shit in it.”

The man shouted back: “I’m from New York and just down here campaigning for Obama’s health care and financial reform plans. I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.”
The rancher yelled back: “Use both hands.”
