Bull: "Boys, we all know I've been here 5 years. Once we settled our differences, we
agreed on which 100 of the cows would be mine. Now, I don't know where this newcomer is
going to get HIS cows, but I aint givin' him any of mine."
Second Bull: "That
pretty much says it for me, too. I've been here 3 years and have earned my right to the 50
cows we've agreed are mine. I'll fight 'em till I run him off or kill 'em, but I AM
KEEPIN' ALL MY COWS."
Third Bull: "I've only
been here a year, and so far you guys have only let me have 10 cows to take care of.
I may not be as big as you fellows (yet) but I am young and virile, so I simply MUST keep
all MY cows."
They had just finished
their big talk when an eighteen-wheeler pulls up in the middle of the pasture with only
ONE ANIMAL IN IT: the biggest Son-of-Another-Bull these guys had ever seen! At 4700
pounds, each step he took toward the ground strained the steel ramp to the breaking point.
First Bull: "You know,
it's actually been some time since I really felt I was doing all my cows justice, anyway.
I think I can spare a few for our new friend."
Second Bull: "I'll
have plenty of cows to take care of if I just stay on the opposite end of the pasture from
HIM. I'm certainly not looking for an argument."
They look over at their
young friend, the 3rd bull, and find him pawing the dirt, shaking his horns, and snorting
-- the bull's equivalent of an Ape's beating his chest or Man's bone-chilling, war-like
cry of "Stay away from my Woman, Vato!!""
First Bull: "Son, let
me give you some advice real quick. Let him have some of your cows and live to tell about
Third Bull: "Hell, Mister, he can have
ALL MY COWS. I'm just making damn sure he knows IM a bull!"
