if you're wondering about the title 'boiled cowboy', it is derived from an email, no doubt spam, that i happened to receive with the subject line of "boiled cowboy". i think the spammers
are getting more clever. or something. i have to admit i was intrigued by the thought of some run-down bar on the outside of paris
creating a disgusting drink that mocked Americans and naming it "boiled cowboy". [American tourist mistakenly enters bar. "Give him ze
drink of ze
house", says burly french lumberjack*. American foolishly drinks a disgusting combination of horse urine and frog leg juice, topped off with an ounce of whiskey. Spitting it out, he gags "what is this stuff?!". A chorus of French men: "we call it ze
boil-ed cowboy! hon hon hon" (hearty french laughter).]
boiled cowboy is at least better than "we delivver
drug$ anywhere" or "are u happy" and slightly better than "whoop reinstatement" which i hope is about the song "whoop there it is" being reinstated in the radio station playlists

Re: Your cows!
*do they have lumberjacks in france
? Googling "french lumberjack" brought me to this amazing site: Pierre the French Lumberjack
. "Steals shoelaces, stole a death ray to take over the world. Pierre is a big fan of pancakes." No factual pages came up on the topic of french forestry, but I bet there are some. Maybe just Québécois
**am i the only one whole looks through
their spam folder? i have this fear that something incredibly important has been filtered and consequently, i look through each and every message title to make sure its not important.
