Camping With The Toughest Cowboy


Some old cowboys were seated around the campfire out on 
the lonesome prairie, and with the pride for which these men 
were famous, it was a night of bravado, rot gut whiskey, 
and many tall tales...
Frank, the hand from Wyoming says, "I must be the strongest, 
meanest, toughest cowboy there is.

Why, just the other day, a bull got loose in the corral. It had
gored six men before I wrestled it to the ground by the horns 
with my bare hands and castrated that sucker with my teeth."
Snake River Ben, from Idaho, couldn't stand to be bested. 
"That's nothing, I was walking down the trail yesterday 
and a 15 foot diamondback rattler slid out from 
under a rock and made a move for me.

I grabbed that bastard with my bare hands, bit off its head, 
and sucked the poison down in one gulp - 
didn't even get a belly ache."
Old Red River Tom, the cowboy from Texas, 
remained silent, slowly stirring the
campfire coals with his pecker...

Thank You Trailbee!

  9. Madhat, I haven't heard that one, but that's probably because I'm not from Texas.
