Pardon me, boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo-Choo?*
*There is a play on words joke connected to this song: Roy Rogers gets a brand new pair of cowboy boots from his lovely wife, Dale Evans. He leaves them out on the porch of his ranch house and, in the morning, discovers they’ve been gnawed by a mountain lion. Roy grabs a rifle and his horse and goes out to kill the varmint. Three hours later Roy’s back with a dead mountain lion tied across his saddle. Dale Evans, his wife, goes up to him and says, ‘Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat that chewed your new shoes?’
In the days of steam trains, locomotives needed frequent refills of water. They made water stops near streams and lakes and hauled water up to the boiler. These trains were called jerkwaters from the jerking of water in buckets. In time they built water tanks along the tracks. Since these stops were in remote, insignificant areas, the towns around there were known as jerkwater towns. Earliest documented use: 1878.
