An elderly couple, Ray and Bessie, were new settlers
in Adelaide , Australia .
Ray always wanted a pair of authentic RM Williams
boots. Seeing some on sale one day, he buys them,
wears them home, walking proudly. He walks into the
house and says to his wife: "Notice anything
different about me?"
Bessie looks him over, "Nope."
Frustrated Ray storms off into the bathroom,
undresses, and walks back into the room completely
naked except for the boots, and asks, a little
louder this time, "Notice anything DIFFERENT NOW?"
Bessie looks up and says, "Ray, what's different?
It's hanging down today, it was hanging downyesterday,
it'll be hanging down again tomorrow."
Furious, Ray yells, "AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT IS
HANGING DOWN, BESSIE? IT'S HANGING DOWN BECAUSE IT'S
LOOKING AT MY NEW BOOTS!"
To which Bessie replies, "Shoulda bought a new hat, Ray".
