A bit ashamed to admit it, but I think I can read Texan:

1st Texan: See them pigs?
2nd Texan:Them ain't pigs.
1st Texan: Those are
2nd Texan: Well I'll be. Them are pigs.

You can always tell a texan. ......................... You jes caint tell im much.

Jim - you can translate texan for me any time!

As RE: your sig:

Did the man speak? He is wrong.
In fact he is wrong just on principle. He didn't need to speak at all.

Yep. The question was completely rhetorical.

1st Texan: See 'em pigs?
2nd Texan:'em ain't pigs.
1st Texan: Oh 'es 'ey are. (Oh, yes they are.)
2nd Texan: 'ell I'll be. 'em are pigs.

Probably used the Texan-to-English setting for Google Translate. It's a little flaky, but it's better than nothin'...

I always heard it as "If a man walks through the forest, is he still wrong?" Both versions work.

No, I tried Google Translate and it didn't work at all. I didn't see Texan listed as a language, so I set it to auto detect and the site crashed.

DISCLAIMER: Don't try this at home!

My wife and I were fighting arguing discussing something and she finally admitted that I was right but she couldn't leave it at that. She said "See? That's the difference between us. When I'm wrong, I'll say so." I told her that we were exactly the same. When she's wrong I'll say so too.

Like I said, don't try this at home................ or anywhere else.

I think that comes under "knowing when to quit, and knowing when to duck".
