I don't care who you are that's funny. Or, A good way to answer dum questions.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Those are about the funniest Q&A that I have read in a LONG time (I'm still in tears!)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
