Cowboy with Chapped Lips
An old cowhand came riding into town on a hot, dry, dusty day. The
local sheriff watched from his chair in front of the saloon as the
cowboy wearily dismounted and tied his horse to the rail a few feet
In front of the sheriff.
"Howdy, Stranger" greeted the sheriff. "Howdy, Sheriff", returned
The cowboy then moved slowly to the back of the horse, lifted the
horse's tail and placed a big kiss on the horse's ass. He dropped
the horse's tail, stepped up on the walk, and headed straight
toward the swinging doors of the saloon.
"Hold on there, Mister", said the Sheriff. "Did I just see what I
think I saw?"
"Reckon you did, Sheriff, 'cause I got me some powerful chapped
lips.", the cowboy replied.
"And does that cure them?" the Sheriff asked.
The cowboy turned back toward the saloon and without missing a beat
explained, "Nope, but it sure keeps me from lickin''em!"
