“What’s the difference between John Wayne and Jack Daniels?” (joke)

American actor John Wayne (1907-1979) was famous for his portrayals of cowboys. Jack Daniel’s is a brand of Tennessee whiskey. A popular (sometimes politically incorrect) joke is:

Q: What’s the difference between John Wayne and Jack Daniels?
A: Jack Daniels is still killing Indians.


The joke has been cited in print since at least October 2010.


Wikipedia: John Wayne
Marion Mitchell Morrison (born Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979), better known by his stage name John Wayne and the nickname Duke, was an American actor, director, and producer. An Academy Award-winner for True Grit (1969), Wayne was among the top box office draws for three decades.

Wikipedia: Jack Daniel’s
Jack Daniel’s is a brand of Tennessee whiskey and the top selling American whiskey in the world. It is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, by the Jack Daniel Distillery, which has been owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation since 1956. Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel’s home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county.

Pg. 99:
Another man seated at the bar asked, “Anyone in here know the difference between John Wayne and Jack Daniels?”

Eloy thought hard but he didn’t know the difference. He didn’t even know what they had in common.

There was a long silence as they all waited for someone to give the answer.

Finally, the man said, “Jack Daniels is still killing Indians.”
