My best friend Texas Longhorn told me an amusing anecdote concerning this cartoon. He was at the local farmers market dong some shopping, when he came upon a gentleman wearing a US Marshall's cap. Texas asked, "Are you just wearing that cap, or are you working for them?"
The gentleman looked at him and replied, "Don't you recognize me?" Texas said, "No, not in these surroundings." The gentleman said that he was working for the state police, when Texas and I had stopped the Presidential motorcade. When he said that, Texas immediately handed the US Marshal this cartoon, which also had "D.C. What does it mean?" printed on the back. After viewing the cartoon and reading the "D.C." article, here is the ensuing conversation that occurred between them:
Marshal: Why did you and Barbara stop the presidential motorcade back in 1984?
Texas: Because the government kept insisting that they have no proof that I exist. I got tired of all the bureaucratic red tape. So I figured, fine, then I'm not standing in the middle of the road with Barbara!
Marshal: Don't you have any school records?
Marshal: Do you have any military records?
Marshal: Do you have a baptismal certificate?
Marshal: Do you have a birth certificate?
Marshal: (said in an encredulous tone) You don't have a birth certificate?!?
Marshal: So then, where are your parents?
Texas: I've never seen them.
Marshal: Do you know where you were born?
Texas: No, and I don't care. I have no idea if I was born in this country or not. The entire planet is my home.
(Note: Texas told me that the Marshal was insistent when it came to him having a birth certificate.)
So, becoming exasperated with the Marshal's singular, persistent line of questioning, concerning one having to possess a piece of paper to prove ones existence, Texas responded with:
I've never seen BIRDS flying around with birth certificates to prove to other BIRDS that they have a birth date. Birds know they exist!
Marshall: (mumbling) You should have some form of identification?!
Texas: I already have the best form of identification, how many people do you know on this planet whose cow has apppeared in court as a character witness for them, had them to township and borough hall meetings and stopped a presidential motorcade!
Marshall: (just standing there slack jawed)
Texas: How many times have you heard of people around this planet, who deliberately forge documents of all kinds. Even the currency of various nations. Better to say who you are and stand by that!
Note: Texas also mentioned (at some point) during the conversation, "Considering the horrendous experience in the household I was sold to (by the government), I care not which country my inheritance lies, the controlling government can have it!"
I have come across people who, for some reason, don't believe what I have written in this BLUE Note. Let this fact be known! Both persons of that household are dead and I know not where they are buried, nor do I care! If the government has not gotten the part of the inheritence that should have been mine. Then they should go out and sieze it!
