Free Drinks

This guy backpacking across the West during the 1980 presidential campaign comes up with a great scheme to get free drinks. He finds out which candidate is popular in the area, walks into a bar and loudly insults the other party’s man. Works great, and soon he can figure out who’s the favored candidate in a town intuitively, without even asking.


So he walks into a bar and shouts “Carter is a horse’s ass!” And they throw him out of the bar. Thinking he made a mistake, guy goes back in to correct it, shouting “Reagan is a horse’s ass!” But in a moment he’s out on the pavement again.


A cowboy walks by, so guy says to him, “I can’t figure it out. Is this Carter country or Reagan country?”


“Son,” says the cowboy, “this here is horse country!”
