  From: Jonathan Lighter:
  The Chief says, "What in blazes is this?  I call the Texas Rangers to =
put down a riot and all they send is ONE little ol' Ranger?"

  The Ranger shifts his chaw from one side to the other, squirts a brown =
stream o' juice, an' he says, "Hell, they's only ONE little ol' riot, =
ain't they?"

This reminds me of "One riot, one Mountie."
