A young man who left his home in Texas at an early age, finally purchased
his own ranch in Oklahoma. He invited his father out for a visit, and
took him on a tour of the property. Driving along in the son's pickup
truck, a jack rabbit hopped onto the road in front of them. The son
stopped the truck to let the rabbit pass, and the father queried: "What
in tarnation is that!?"

The son incredulously replied, "That's a jackrabbit, Dad, what did you
think it was?" The father shrugged and said, "We grow 'em alot bigger'n
at back home in Texas." So they went on and a little farther on they came
to a few buffalo roaming the range. The son stopped the truck and the
father again said in a puzzled tone "What are those?"

The son hesitantly said "Those are buffalo, Dad; you gotta be kiddin me,
you really don't recognize them?" The father replied "Well, I guess
they're kinda familiar --it's just that we grow 'em so much bigger back in

The son, a bit disgruntled, drove on in silence. At length they
approached a low part in the road with marshy wetlands on either side. A
large snapping turtle lumbered onto the road. The father peered intently
at the creature and said "Now what the heck is that thing!?"

The son replied, without missing a beat, "Wood tick".
