A Mexican bandit made a specialty of crossing the Rio Grande from time to time and robbing banks in Texas. Finally, a reward was offered for his capture and an enterprising Texas Ranger decided to track him down. After a lengthy search, he traced the bandit to his favorite cantina, snuck up behind him, put his trusty six-shooter to the bandit’s head, and said, “You’re under arrest. Tell me where you hid the loot or I’ll blow your brains out.”

But the bandit didn’t speak English, and the Ranger didn’t speak Spanish. Fortunately, a translator was in the saloon and offers to translate for the Ranger. He tells the bandit he is under arrest, and the ranger wants to know where he hid the loot. The bandit replies in Spanish, “Vete al infierno!”. The ranger tells the translator “Did you tell him I will shoot him, if he doesn’t tell me?”. The translator repeats this to the bandit. The bandit spits at the ranger. The ranger shoots him in the kneecap and puts the gun again to the bandit’s head. He tells the translator “Tell him this is his last chance. He tells me where the money is, or I kill him.”

The bandit is screaming in pain and cursing the ranger. But he is also scared for his life now. The terrified bandit blurts out, “Tienen que caminar tres cuadras hasta ese gran arbol: allí está el dinero”. What did he say?” asks the Ranger. The translator answers, “He said ‘Get lost, gringo. You wouldn’t dare kill me.’”
