Western Heroes Renamed.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 4:25 pm

Damned if I know how stuff finds its way to my cruller while doing a morning groundpound, but it does, and the stuff often doesn’t make much sense. Today it was below freezing, but I was wearing a nice woolen cap, so I can’t attribute this foolishness to a lack of cranial blood flow. Being a blogger, I’ve learned not to fight off ideas, no matter how goofy they may be. So, with that, I will share with you today’s brain fart:

I got to thinking about Western Heroes (called “cowboys,” when I was a youngin’). That must have fired off the nonsense neuron, because I got to thinking about renaming the gunslingers of yore. Here they are:

The Crisco Kid: Riding the plains in search of the ultimate flaky pie crust.

Wild Bill Hiccup: The gunfighter who had to hang up his shootin’ irons because of intractable spasms of the diaphragm.

Stoned Ranger: Hiyoooooooh … uh …. Hiyoooooooh …. uh … dude”

Bong-o: The Stoned Ranger’s faithful Indian native American companion. ”Hey kimosabe, you ate all the beef jerky? Got any cookies left?”

Chorro: The masked, caped swordsman in black who carved a “C” with his blade and could not suppress the urge to occasionally shake his ass and say, “Cuchi-Cuchi!”

Green Autry: The enviro-cowboy. It was said that ol’ Green would never let his horse shit anywhere near a stream.

Flabby Hayes: It is not widely known, but the bearded, ubiquitous sidekick curmudgeon, after growing too fat to ride a horse without injuring the animal, was responsible for the design of an equine sidecar.

Tom Dicks: A famous cowboy, or a subject and a verb seeking a predicate?

Crawlalong Cassidy: After several failed attempts at rehab, and having pawned his six-shooters, Crawlalong nevertheless ended up in the Bowery wearing a battered black hat looking for bad guys.

Goy Rogers: The name given to Roy by his buddy Shlomo Finklestein, the Jewish proprietor of the General Store near the Double R Bar Ranch.

Ya think maybe I need a warmer hat?

  2. A looser hat, perhaps…and maybe the $150-per-fluid-oz. hair pomade you use is seeping into your head’s pores.

  3. perhaps, maybe… maybe just a hat that doesn’t cut off quite so much blood circulation…

  4. Howe about Red Roder…the Little Beaver? Some gags for that straight line…

  5. You forgot Crapalong Hoppity, who used to be able to pinch off a strunz’ while jumping on one foot. (He shot the other foot off in a tragic Gunfire-Related Mishap while – you guessed it – pinching off a strunz’.)

  6. I think your hat is probably fine. What I’d suggest is walking a little more briskly, so that the blood actually gets all the way up into your brain.

    Only if your head is cold. LOL. All I can think of after reading those is that Mel Brooks must have sought you out for an in depth consultation to come up with Hedley Lamarr.

    Let`s not forget “Bullet Bob Steal” whose wife said Enough with the bullet`s already, Howza bout getting a gun or two?

    Or “Wild Bill Inchcock” who got laughed out of every whorehouse he ever went to.

    Or “Chlamedia Jane”….No respectable cowpoke would touch her but the cow`s were nervous.

    Just trying to help!

  14. Jimbo…….

    I forgot one, “Smelly Burnette” who was almost selected as the Representative for Bush`s Chili before they hired the dog.

  15. Don’t think it’s temp related, Jim. Breath deeper man, it’s lack of oxygen.

    Really though, those are all great.
