Brown Paper Pete

A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a whiskey.

While the barkeep's pouring, the cowboy looks around.

"Where is everybody?" he says.

"Gone to the hanging," says the barkeep.

"Hanging?" says the cowboy. "Who're they hanging?"

"Brown Paper Pete."

"Brown Paper Pete? Why do they call him that?"

"Well," said the barkeep, "All his clothes are made from brown paper bags. His hat's made from brown paper bags, his shirt's made from brown paper bags, his jacket's made from brown paper bags, and his pants are made from brown paper bags."

"Really?" says the cowboy. "What are they hanging him for?"

"Rustling."

  1. I know a guy named Russell. I always wanted to tell him that he was named after the sound my hand makes in a potato chip bag.
