Three tough Texas cowgirls are sitting around a campfire,
out on a lonesome Texas prairie, each with the bluster for
which cowgirls are famous. A night of tall tales commences.
The first one says, "I must be the meanest, toughest cowgirl
there is. Why, just the other day a bull got loose in the corral and gored six men before I wrestled it to the ground by the
horns with my bare hands."
The second cowgirl could not tolerate to be bested. "Why that's nothing. I was walking
down the trail yesterday and a fifteen-foot rattlesnake slid out from under a rock and made a move for me. I grabbed that
snake with my bare hands, bit its head off and sucked the poison down in one gulp. And I'm still here today."
cowgirl remained silent, silently stirring the coals with his hands.
