So, this is the sketch i got from Vera Brosgol at the Stumptown Comic Fest. I asked her if show could do a robot or a likeness, she kinda did both. She was talking about how they might move to portland so i told her the joke about the Californian, Texan and Oregonian who were out camping to illustrate the attitude towards outsiders. (but you'd be hard pressed to find a native)
A Texan, an Oregonian (or Seattle-ite), and a Californian were all on a camping trip. They're getting drunk, and they've started in to bragging about their states. The Texan says, "Hell, ah reckon the Free State of Texas is purt'near the finest state in this heyar nation." With that, he lets out a "Yeeeeeeee-Haaaaaaaaw" and tosses his half-full bottle of tequila in the air, whips out a six-gun from its holster, and blows the bottle to smithereens in mid-air. The other two cry out, "What the hell are you doing?!?? That was a perfectly good bottle of tequila!" "Aww, shucks," came the Texan's reply, "We've got plenty of tequila in Texas." Next, the Californian stands up, and says, "That was pretty gnarly, dude, but check this out!" And with that, he tosses his bottle of Napa Valley wine up in the air, pulls out a gangsta-style glock and bullseyes the bottle, sending shards of glass and wine droplets streaming down. "What'd you do that for?" say the Oregonian and Texan in unison. "Dude, it's totally copacetic. California's wine country. We've got lots of wine in California." Finally, the Oregonian stands up. He pulls up his flannel shirt and slips on his Birkenstocks and walks over to his REI backpack and pulls out a sawed off shotgun. He then takes a swig of Deschutes Black Butte Porter (a popular Microbrew) tosses the bottle in the air and shoots the Californian. The Texan is shocked, and says "What the hell'd ya do that for, son?" "Well," came the Oregonian's reply, "We've got plenty of Californians here in Oregon. Besides, I can get a nickel for recycling this bottle!"
