A cowboy rode into a western town, only to find the streets nearly deserted. He went into the general store.
“The streets are empty,” he said to the shopkeeper.
“Yup. They all be at the hangin’.”
“Who they hangin’?”
“Paper Bag Pete.”
“Paper Bag Pete? Why they call him that?”
“I reckon because he wears a paper bag hat, a paper bag shirt, a paper bag vest, paper bag pants, paper bag socks, paper bag boots, even paper bag spurs.”
“O.K., so what’re they hangin’ him for?”
“What else? Rustlin’.”
