A big Texas cowboy stopped at a local restaurant following a day of drinking and roaming around in Mexico.. While sipping his tequila, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious looking platter being served at the next table.. Not only did it look good, the smell was wonderful… He asked the waiter, “What is that you just served?”

The waiter replied, “Ah senor, you have excellent taste! Those are bull’s testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!”

The cowboy, though momentarily daunted, said, “What the heck, I’m on vacation down here! Bring me an order!”

The waiter replied, “I am so sorry senor… There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early tomorrow and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy!”

The next morning, the cowboy returned, placed his order, and then that evening he was served the one and only special delicacy of the day. After a few bites, and inspecting the contents of his platter, he called to the waiter and said, “These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday!”

The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, “Si, Senor, sometimes the bull wins”
