A Cowboy Story...
Three cowboys were seated around the campfire out on the lonesome sagebrush prairie, and with the pride for which these men were famous; it was a night of bravado, tall tales and nearby wolves howling under the moonlight.
Tom, the hand from Wyoming says, 'I must be the strongest, meanest, toughest cowboy there every was. Why, just the other day, a bull got loose in the corral. It had gored six men, and stomped two others to death before I wrestled it to the ground by the horns with my bare hands, and castrated that devil with my teeth.'
Ben, from Colorado, couldn't stand to be bested.. That's ainít nothin, 'I was
walkin down the trail yesterday and a 15 foot diamondback rattler slid out
from under a mighty big rock and made a move for me. I grabbed that ******* with my bare hands, bit off its terrible head, and sucked the poison down in one gulp, and didn't even get a belly ache.'
Old Dingus Bob, the cowboy from West Texas, remained silent, slowly stirring the campfire coals with his pecker.
