A New Mexican met an Arizonan while hiking through the desert. The New Mexican had a big squirt bottle of water, and a towel wrapped around his head; the Arizonan was carrying a car door. The AZ guy was quite puzzled, and asked the NM guy what the water bottle and towel were for. NM replied, "when I get too hot, I spray water on the towel, and am cooled by evaporation." To this AZ guy sneered and said, "whenever I get hot, I just roll down the window."

You know, a lot of the people from Arizona are actually from California.

Well, shit, I'm glad you told me that. There was a huge herd of camels just north of my house this morning, and I REALLY wanted to shoot one.


You Arizona bonehead, those were no camels! That was the Northern Arizona University Cheerleading Squad. What are you gonna do with a dead cheerleader, anyway? Oh let me guess.....


You New Mexico terrorists need glasses.

This is an ex-NAU cheerleader, now a Cardinals cheerleader:

Speaking of the AZ Cardinals, how's your pro football team doing this year?

Geez, and I always thought camels had TWO humps!

Wait-a-minute. That might be the connection between a camel and a cheerleader!

I was in Ajo (is that just the greatest name for a town, or what?) last year and stopped at the local market for supplies. Kind of like a mini-Walmart, they sell everything from food to hardware. They had a special on motor oil, $1/qt. - such a deal, so I bought a case and tossed it in the back of the van. When I got home I thought the labeling was a bit funny, showing just "30" where I thought it should be something like "10W30". I read the small print on the back and it said, "Formulated for older cars. Not to be used in cars manufactured after 1964." :shock:
Where did they even find this stuff? Across the border?

It is probably "non-detergent" oil ("detergent oil" is really just oil modified not to coagulate). In older cars, you are supposed to clean the coagulated oil out of the oil pan. In more modern cars, the chemically-modified "detergent" oil keeps the crud from ever forming large chunks. When they used "non-detergent" oil in a cars, they cleaned out the oil pan and filters fairly often.

My brother still buys non-detergent oil for his tractor (built in the 1940s). I recall about 1972, his wife accidentally added detergent oil to one of his older vans, and he had to drain out all the oil and replace it. I now doubt that was really necessary, since real detergent oil had not been made for some time. Non-detergent is still a popular oil for industrial machinery.
