A Nice Cold One...

A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and orders three cold ones.

He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."

The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent.

When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."

"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.

"Hasn't affected my brothers though...."

A cowboy moving to Wyoming from Texas needed to drink a lot. When
he enquired in early June 'Say,
when will the snow melt?" another ranch hand tossing one back at the bar replied, "Snow don't melt in
Wyoming...just blows around til it
wears out."

Well, since this is a humor post, and I'm getting real tired of all the left / right / and JoPa $#@! in the news . . . Here is another one for ya!

There was a mountain lion that spotted a rancher's herd. He pounced, and was able to kill the largest bull. He ate his fill; and feeling so good afterward, he roared and roared and roared just for the pure pleasure of it.
The rancher heard the roaring, grabbed his gun, and shot the lion.
Moral: When you are full of bull; keep your mouth shut!
