Solution to Ten commandment controversy
[Return to Topics]

People here in Texas have trouble with all those "thy shalls and shall nots" in the 10 Commandments.
Folks here just aren't used to talking like that.

So, some folks out in West Texas got together and translated the "King James" into "King Ranch" language:

Ten Commandments, cowboy Style.

Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at
Cross Trails Church
Fairlie, Texas.

(1) Just one God.

(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.

(3) No telling tales or gossipin'.

(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.

(5) Put nothin' before God.

(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.

(7) No killin'.

(8) Watch yer mouth.

(9) Don't take what ain't yers.

(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff.

Now that's kinda plain an' simple don't ya think?
Y'all have a good Day.

yabbut there is the language barrier to consider. Some of them folks up north don't understand "ya'll".
Of course we expect all of Canada to understand it soon, since they are apparently getting a translator up there. BTW did you have grits for breakfast?

KellyGa    Posted 03-14-2004 at 15:18:15       [Reply]  [No Email]
I had grits, scrambled eggs, and bacon for breakfast. Lots of butter, of course. ;)
