The Legend of Pecos Bill
Written by Joe Janes
(Lights up on cowboys around a campfire. Young Whizzle tools around with a harmonica.)
(Lights up on Pecos Bill and his horse, Widowmaker eyeing Slue-foot Sue.)
(They sigh and look at one another.)
(Lights up on Catfish marrying Slue and Pecos with Widowmaker standing in as the best man.)
(Slue and Pecos and Widowmaker all start shooting their guns and commence to “whoopping.”)
(Lights up on Slue, Pecos, Widowmaker and the Catfish all in bed.)
I don’t know, Sue…
(Sue leads Widowmaker behind a "hill" on stage.)
(Widow-maker runs back on stage and joins Pecos. They watch Slue - a small doll version - pop up behind the mountain and hit the moon and return to earth and bounce.)
(Bill takes more shots at Slue and we hear her, and the moon, saying “Ow!” Widowmaker and Catfish join in trying to shoot her.)
(We hear a fierce wind. A twister hits the camp and the cowboys all start spinning around. It suddenly stops.)
(Dirk shoots her.)
THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
"According to Rev. Jose Funes, the Vatican says it's okay to believe in what?"
Nobody went for the answers "The Devil," "Mormans" or "Santa Claus"
100% got it right with "Extra-Terrestials"
According to The Associated Press, the Vatican's chief astronomer says that believing in aliens does not contradict faith in God.
The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, says that the vastness of the universe means it is possible there could be other forms of life outside Earth, even intelligent ones.Funes says that such a notion "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures.
And being God's creatures that also means we get to eat them.
