A Texan Was Driving Through Israel During Sukkot…

A Texan was driving through Israel during Sukkot and began to feel thirsty.  Because of the holiday, he couldn't find anything open. Then he noticed a sukkah.

A Texan was driving through Israel during Sukkot and began to feel thirsty.

Because of the holiday, he couldn’t find anything open.

Noticing a sukkah (festival dwelling) by the side of the road, he stopped and met the owner.

“Can you give me a drink of water?”

“Of course,” said the Israeli, and invited the Texan into his sukkah.

His thirst quenched, the Texan asked, “What do you do?”

“I raise vegetables and have a few chickens.”

“Really? I’m a farmer too. How much land do you have?”

“Well,” said the Israeli, “out front it’s a good fifty meters, as you can see, and in the back we have close to a hundred meters of fine land. And you?”

“Well,” says the Texan, “on my ranch, I can have breakfast, get in my car, drive all day, and I don’t reach the end of my property until dinnertime.”

“Hawh! I know what you mean – I once had a car like that too.”
