"AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A double-decker party barge capsized when dozens 
of passengers moved to one side of the boat as it approached Texas' 
only nude beach."
...but here's the best part...
"[Travis County sheriff's spokesman Roger] Wade said it was unclear why 
the people all were on one side of the boat."

I immediately flashed on the horrible moment of realization of the one poor
partygoer who probably stayed put as everyone rushed to the opposite rail.

As a follow up to the story, as it turns out, the only coffee
pot was located on one side of the boat.  Authorities say that
future vessels will be equipped with two coffee pots, one on
each side to balance the boat during heavy caffeine rush hours.

Actually, that was the captain. Deputy Wade again: "As the captain was 
running upstairs to tell them to move away from the railing, it 
capsized."

Yeah, you guys down there have new vocabulary words that are unique.
PARPO. In the Texas dictionary these are defined as the poles that carry the
wires to your home.
"Hey, look at them Parpos"
