Texas Gov. Rick Perry made a joke at a Latino convention that an appointee’s name sounds like a bottle of tequila — and it didn’t go over very well...
Perry reportedly joked that he liked how a man named Jose Cuevas had been appointed to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission because his name sounds like Jose Cuervo, a brand of tequila. The joke fell flat.
“Perry struggled to regain his confidence as he described Texas as a land of opportunity,” the Associated Press reported.
Perry next went to a gathering of rabbis and joked about how many of them had "Gold" in their names.
