Pecan Ville


There once was a little town named Pecan Ville. It was named after the 
Sherriff who kept a jail full of delinquents and you guessed it, Pecans. 
Every year Sheriff George would run a pecan pie eating contest and give 
the winner a custom made gold watch from Switzerland. 
The women lovingly gathered pecans each year and produced the tastiest pies on earth. Secret recipes were exchanged late at night 
through hushed phone calls while the rest of the world slept.   
The big day arrived and the front table was set. Sheriff George arrived in a wheel barrel car coated with dried pecans that had seen better days. 
"Welcome to the pecan festival my fellow pecaneers!!! 
" One young man who wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed asked, 
"What is in those barrels Sheriff ?" he points to a large expanse by the 
lake. Everyone gasps in unified  fashion as George yanks his collar 
and puts him aside. "Son, if you ever peak inside them barrels, 
you are gonna die a happy man with a belly full of pecans. " The boy 
went pale then quiet as a mouse went over to join the other spectators. 
They all knew what happened when someone broke the rule. They were 
slam dunked in jail. The rumor ruffians spread the word like jelly on butter. 
" Pssst, he force feeds them Pecans until they burst. Then stuffs them in wheel barrels and rolls them out to the lake. Every night he drives over there and smokes a big fat cigar and tells them jokes until the moon has had enough and the sun is ready to burst in the face of dawn. Whatever you do fellow readers, if you visit Pecan Ville, for the love of God, 
do not peek inside the barrels. Aside from that enjoy the town folks. Go ahead have a few pecans. They are the best in town, or so I hear. 

The End
