Reminds me of many years ago when I was in New Orleans and a street kid came up to me and said "I bet I know where you got them boots."

Considering that my boots were genuine elephant-skin made custom by a boot maker in Las Vegas, I figured that the kid had mistaken the maker for someone local. So I asked him "How much?" and he answered "Five Bucks!"

I said "Okay, you got a bet." and the kid replied "You got them boots on Bourbon Street." Considering that I was currently standing on Bourbon street in the french Quarter, I saw how I had been tricked.

In any event, I paid the kid $5 and the next kid who asked me the same question, I qualified the bet but had no takers.
