  1. “Pecos Mac” McCarthy index-fingered back the brim of his battered Stetson, squatted at the edge of the waterhole, cupped a handful of brackish water, squinted out over the shimmering alkali flats of the Badlands, and decided then and there that he had prit’ near had it with overwrought, hackneyed western imagery. – Joseph Pramuk, Napa, CA

    This was an entry in Bulwer-Lytton, so it actually merits that kind of response.

    1. Nice job, cuate. I glass the caldera and see your cowboy cliches coming. Nothing that pun damaged walks uphill. Just don’t happen. I wonder if you’re watching your backtrack to put a bullet in my dumb ass, but your trail’s got too much blood. I’ll wait and let the buzzards tell me when you’re staring at nothin’, then I’m takin’ the gold watch, maybe the girl too, maybe everything.
