Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert after  crossing into the United States, wandering aimlessly and starving. They  are about to just lie down and wait for death, when all of a sudden Luis  says………
 
“Hey Pepe, do you smell what I  smell.  Ees bacon, I theenk.”
 
“Si, Luis, eet sure smells like bacon.” 
 
With renewed hope  they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a  tree loaded with bacon.
 

There’s raw bacon,  there’s fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon .. Every  imaginable kind of cured pork.
 
“Pepe, Pepe, we  ees saved.  Ees a bacon tree.”
 
“Luis,  maybe ees a meerage?  We ees in the desert don’t   forget.”
 
“Pepe, since when deed you ever hear of  a meerage that smell like bacon..ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree.”
 
And with that, Luis staggers  towards the tree.  He gets to within 5 metres, Pepe crawling close  behind, when suddenly a machine gun opens up, and Luis drops like a wet  sock.  Mortally wounded, he warns Pepe with his dying  breath,
 
“Pepe.. Go back man, you was right,  ees not a bacon tree!”
 

“Luis, Luis mi amigo…  What ees it? “
 

“Pepe.. Ees not a bacon tree.   Ees
