Don’t ask a lawyer to translate.

A Mexican bandit made a specialty of crossing the Rio Grande from time to time and robbing banks in Texas. Finally, a rewardwas offered for his capture, and an enterprising Texas rangerdecided to track him down.

After a lengthy search, he traced the bandit to his favorite cantina, snuck up behind him, put his trusty six-shooter to thebandit’s head, and said, “You’re under arrest. Tell me whereyou hid the loot or I’ll blow your brains out.”

But the bandit didn’t speak English, and the Ranger didn’t speak Spanish. Fortunately, a bilingual lawyer was in the saloonand translated the Ranger’s message. The terrified bandit blurtedout, in Spanish, that the loot was buried under the oak tree inback of the cantina.

“What did he say?” asked the Ranger.

The lawyer answered, “He said ‘Get lost, you turkey. You wouldn’t dare shoot me.'”
