The easiest way is to get a package of Wick Fowler's Chili Mix and follow the directions. If you are like the guy in the joke, though, I'd be careful about how much of the red pepper packet I put in there. I usually only use about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon full of it myself.

Yep, Wick Fowler's a good start and you can add what you like in the way of extras. Maggie what part of Tx. you in.

Liberty County, just northeast of Houston.

Know the area well Maggie, used to hunt up toward Rye years ago and got friends in Dayton. I guess you know Burr just south of you down around Anahuac.

I didn't realize Burr was in Anahuac! We usually go to the GatorFest there, but didn't this year. I'm just outside of Dayton near Kenefick. Small world, huh? :)

Yes mam that's what they say it's a small world and these machines make it smaller everyday. I'm down south pasadena for now but hopefully not much longer. Know right where your at, used to hunt over that way too. When my boys was yungens used to take em bull riding over at Mutts place just north of town there. I always wanted to make that gator fest but seems like something elese comes up or is going on and I'll forget it or miss it. My favorite pass time is attending fairs, rodeos, and festivals aroung the state. Nice meeting you and have a good day.

Yep ye want to eat equal parts chili and ice cream. That way at potty time ye can scream "come on ice cream" and have a hope to live.

Real chili eaters carry a joint of good rope behind the pickup seat. You hafta hang off the side of a bridge at a crik for potty time so ye don't set the woods on fire.
