If Alan Ladd could make it, so can he
My best advice for rootin’ tootin’ cowboy Shapiro is – always aim high. Perspective can be a challenge when your targets are so far above you.
Lord, son -- can you write physical comedy...
We have horses and we know many assholes in cowboy hats. (There is some redundancy in that phrase. ) I know a couple of retired firefighters that belong to a club that combines riding with shooting. On one hand, I gotta admit, it takes a lot of training to get a horse to the point you can ride them while shooting guns and not get bucked off clear to the next county. The horses wear do earplugs, but there is still the sudden unexpected noises and I'm sure they feel the kick. So it takes a lot of hours working with the horse to pull it off.
They belong to a club and somehow they compete against other teams. They are really dedicated to their hobby.
Boy Howdy do these faux cowpokes love to dress up ! Boots and vests and chaps and the hats. They love going to Cracker Barrel after a meet in their outfits and sit around swapping stories. About the Old West I imagine. I alway want to tell them it's ok if they just want to dress up and go out. They don't have to go through all the rigamarole to justify wearing chaps out in public. It's a new era.
I think as caring , concerned and accepting Liberals we should cut L'il Ben some slack until he get's all the way through puberty.
Funny stuff Roy - Thanks!
Being a drugstore cowboy is something I must reluctantly admit I have in common with that sawed off jackass Shapiro. I would pay good money to see him on a horse, not even riding it, just sitting atop one, but a big truck is probably as far as it goes with this buckaroo.
This is what a true artiste does: successfully mocks a moron. One would think that no humor could be squeezed out of a low intellect grifter like BS but no, mission all accomplished here.
Only thing, I dunno, that Deputy Dawg reference: Would anyone much under sixty get it? Not that it’s an issue here, i suppose...
“Walk like a cowboy” will always bring to mind Robin Williams in the “The Birdcage” walking like John Wayne, i.e., hip swaying sashay. Meanwhile, in my youth I was taught to roll a cig with one hand by a real rancher during smoke breaks from fencing in the range for some asshole millionaire from Sacramento (a Hewlett or Packard, I forget which). Not a talent I’ve used in decades but for a while in the 70’s it was the ultimate hippie party trick.
I am not at all sure how I‘ve lived 65 years without knowing it was called a „stampede string,“ but I‘m better for knowing it. Much obliged
When Ben's movie studio is up and running I'm betting the trenches for the other actors will be built right into the floors. They probably have technology now that will create actor sinkholes at the touch of a button.
Jesus, you weren't kidding about Gina Carano on the prairie. Maybe Shapiro can get Rod Dreher for a Father Murphy reboot.
I don't know if we're allowed to put in requests, but I really want to see a short drama staged inside a rental van on the way to the Coeur d'Alene Pride Fest. Like 12 Angry Men, but every character is Lee J. Cobb. Or like Reservoir Dogs, where everybody is Mr. Pink (have a look at the mug shots if you didn't get that last reference.)
Nope. It just doesn't work in Shapiro's squeaky voice.
Got to the end and all I can think of is The Spirit Of Jazz from The Mighty Boosh. "Ow chicka ow ow! OW! My hat's on fire!"
If they can believe that Trump is a true christian, then I guess they'll buy baby Ben as a cowboy.
Hey, it worked for George W. Bush.
First recording. Long history in song and film
Oh how they run
When the feller flaps his gums
Because the wingnut folks all know
He's a high falutin, rootin' tootin'
Son of a gun from California
He's some cowboy, talk about fake cowboys, Ragtime Cowboy Ben.
