The Dude Ranch

Every so often I run across something funny that's just too good not to share. Having said that, I hope you enjoy the short anecdote below. I thought it was a hoot—maybe because I could see some of my relatives saying the same thing as the woman in the story!

The Dude Ranch
(From The Good Clean Funnies, contributed by Thomas Ellsworth)

My wife and I went to a "Dude Ranch" while in Texas. The
cowboy preparing the horses asked if she wanted a Western or
English saddle, and she asked what the difference was.

He told her one had a horn and one didn't. She replied, "The
one without the horn is fine. I don't expect we'll run into
too much traffic."

Hee, hee, hee! :) Too funny.

In my part of the country, the horn is used more than the brakes. "Watch out, I'm coming on through." Maybe we should go back to letting the horse decide.

Thanks for the laugh. I can relate to the saddle horn thing on most days as well.

We used to tell our city cousins that you milked a cow by pumping the tail. How rude, eh.
It's tough to be a dude.
