Bowl of Chilli?

A young cowboy walks into a seedy cafe in a small town in West Texas.

As he sits down at the counter he notices an older cowboy with his arms folded, staring blankly at a bowl of chilli. After about 15 minutes of just sitting there watching this guy stare at the bowl of chilli, he bravely asks, "If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if do"?

The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the young wrangler and drawls "Nah, go ahead son".

Eagerly, the hungry young cowboy reaches over and slides the bowl over to his place and starts chowing down! He's almost at the bottom when he suddenly gags and throws up, filling the chilli bowl

He pushes the bowl away disgusted and manages to get out between dry retches "There's a rotten dead rat in the chilli".
The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got too"
