A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a whisky.
When the bartender delivers the drink, the cowboy asks,
“Where is everybody?”
“They’ve gone to the hanging,” The bartender replies.
“Hanging? Who are they hanging?”
“Brown Paper Pete,” the bartender answers.
“What kind of a name is that?” the cowboy asks.
“Well,” says the bartender, “he wears a brown paper hat, brown paper shirt, brown paper trousers and brown paper shoes.”
“How bizarre,” says the cowboy. “What are they hanging him for?”
“Rustling,” answers the bartender.
