Early Texas governors were not very well educated.
There was once a chief executive who thought "grammar" was his father's mother.
On one occasion this governor went hunting and forgot his gun.
He phoned his secretary and asked him to send the gun.
"The phone connection's bad," said the secretary.
"I couldn't catch that last word.
Spell it." The governor replied, " 'G' like in Jesus; 'U' like in onion; 'N' like in pneumonia GUN, you damn fool!"
