Have you ever seen "Mutton Bustin'" live.. It is so funny to watch those little kids ride the sheep.... there is also the one where they ride the hide or gunny sack.. It is crazy how those bitty little kids hang on!! LOL... I have been a few times to the rodeo when these little tikes get out there and do a heck of a job riding those crazy sheep!

That is just sad, sick and sad. Sick, sad and a little bit weird. Sick, sad, weird and actually quite amusing in a sick, sad and weird way.

The blood has gone to his head. Get the nurse to prop you up and then perhaps you'll make more sense.

Sharon - that question was directed at the Texan antique. There's a dwarf on WWE called Hornswaggle.

Hornswaggle - colloquial western American expression (in use way before any little amusement park gnome or the WWE ever existed) meaning to be deceived., having the wool pulled over your eyes, hood=winked, etc.

Obviously I am dealing with two poorly educated, illiterate creatures, one a bi-toothed wet-backed creature who can't keep his fir dry and the other a  floozie that fashions herself a chemist. This absurdity is amusing - and rather tragic.

American expressions aren't usually worth bothering about as they are no more than total nonsense. Although I have to admit I like "cockamamie" (sp?) as a word.

It is a fact, however, that these expressions are from the English and Scottish settlers who colonized the Appalachian area in the early 1800's - so blame the English if you believe total nonsense is the result. It is a fair site better than cursing like a British tar.

He is right you know but what he fails to realise is that in Britain English evolved but in America it remained the same. No imagination or innovation you see.
