WHEN DID COWBOYS BECOME A BUNCH OF YELLOW BELLY PANSIES?

Young cowboy Clint and John Wayne were slightly before my time. My wild western influences were city slicker Jack Palance, the movie Silverado, and The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. Slim pickings, but just enough to give me a fair idea of what a cowboy should be. One who spits in the face of danger. Truly a man’s man. An image that I am sorry to say has recently been tarnished once I learned that designers are now making cowboy rain booties. Seriously.

BEFORE SEEING THE GOODS, KNOW THAT I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THE STYLES. I think the boots are all hip and fashion forward. I just personally think a rough ‘n tough cowboy doesn’t need the following 3 types of coddling. You be the judge.

  1. First it happened to vampires now cowboys too.

    Nobody's as tough or violent as they used to be.

    Which will make my plans for world domination go that much smoother....

  2. That gaudy apparel has always been around. It's responsible for the word 'dude' coming into popular usage.

  6. Brisco FTW and would never wear those kinda boots, especially the goldfish design. That is hilarious!

  7. The duke is turning over in his grave, I am sure. Those are definitely made for the gay rodeo!

    One of my most favorite quotes ever is attributed to John Wayne: "Life is hard. It is even harder if you're stupid."

    Sadly, I mutter that quote to several co-workers on an almost daily basis...
