Joke: A Cowboy Who's Picked on by Strangers at the Saloon Gets Angry
For today’s dose of laughter, two cowboys showed their famed skills in situations they hilariously rectified with some quick thinking that involved saloons, beer, and horses. Enjoy!
MISFORTUNES OF A COWBOY
As the cowboy rode through town, he decided to stop at the local saloon for a drink before continuing on his journey. Two beers later the cowboy left the saloon, but when he got outside, he found his horse had been stolen.
Furious, he went back into the bar. “Which one of you stole my horse?!” the cowboy asked as he fired a shot into the ceiling. The bar fell silent, and after a few moments, the cowboy added,
“Ok, I’m going to have another beer, if my horse is not where I left it by the time my beer is finished, I’m gonna do what I did in Texas,” he yelled. “And I don’t want to do what I needed to do in Texas!”
An uneasiness fell over the bar as the locals nervously glanced at each other. The cowboy sat down and had another beer, and true to his word, he left the saloon right after finishing the last drop.
When the cowboy got outside, his horse stood where he originally left it. He saddled up, and as the cowboy is about to leave the bartender went up to him and asked, “Before you leave, what exactly happened in Texas?”
The cowboy got on his horse and said,
“I had to walk home.”
TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM
A Texas cowboy, who moved to Wyoming and went to the local bar. He ordered three mugs of beer and found a quiet table at the back, where he drank all three beers, alternating them a sip at a time.
When the cowboy ordered another three beers from the bartender, she said, “You know, the beer starts going flat after I draw it. It would taste better if I drew them for you one at a time.”
The cowboy smiled wryly and said, “You see, I have two brothers, and they live far away. The day we left Texas, we made a pact that we’d drink this way in tribute to the times we drank together as brothers.”
The bartender gave an understanding nod and left things there. Over the next couple of months, the cowboy became a regular, and everyone knew his drinking habits.
Then one day, the cowboy walked into the bar and ordered two beers. The bar fell silent and remained hushed until the cowboy went back to the bartender to order a second round.
“I don’t want to intrude, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss,” the bartender said. The words puzzled the cowboy at first, but then the light suddenly dawned in his eyes. “No, no, everyone is fine,” the cowboy explained.
“It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church, and I had to quit drinking."
