Powboy; or, 51 Cowboy Facts

by cowboylands

Fifty-one facts about the Cowboy Myth:

51. The spirit of the Cowboy is alive and well, even when it shouldn’t be. 

50. The Cowboy makes people pose. 

49. Some people look better in cowboy hats than others.

48. Shredded computer printout paper does not hay make.

47. It’s best to be earnest about appropriating the Cowboy. 

46. You don’t have to sing country to dress like a Cowboy. 

45. Pretending like you’re shooting a gun with thumb and forefinger makes it look like you’re playing pretend, no matter how much money you earn a year, 

44. No one ever said you had to have a white hat or a black hat. 

Only how many more facts to go? I have to keep at it, as I still have forty-three to go. In the meantime, here’s an apt quote from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

43. “Put your drawers on and take your gun off.”
