A cowboy rode into town and stopped at a saloon for a drink. Unfortunately,
the locals had a habit of picking on strangers. When he finished his drink,
he found his horse had been stolen. He went back into the bar and with
a quick move of his hands, he flipped his guns into the air, caught them
above his head without even looking and fired at the ceiling. "Which one
of you sidewinders stole my hoss!?" he yelled. No one answered.
I'm gonna have anotha beer, and if my hoss ain't back outside by the time
I finnish, I'm gonna do what I dun in Jerome! And I don't like to have
to do what I dun in Jerome!"
Some of the locals shifted restlessly.
He had another beer, walked outside, and his horse was back! As he swung
up into the saddle and started to ride out of town, the bartender ran out
of the saloon and asked, "Say partner, before you go... what happened in
Jerome?" The cowboy turned back and said, "I walked home."
