Monday Matchup--- I wanna be a cowboy!

well--- here we are--- another monday on our plates.


I'm still trying to ignore that Charlotte is bursting at the seems (seams?) with all things and people NASCAR. I've been somewhat successful so far--- having only left the house to go to church and go on walks....


but lo and behold, I'm going to have to get gas and go food shopping... so I'm bound to run in to somebody buying their busch-lite-draft-in-a-can and extra ranch.... and I'm sure I'll get annoyed.

so while I was mentally prepping myself for the journey into the deep red neck, I fantasized about a nice cowboy that could follow me around and shoot the bad guys for me.... yes, I know that red necks aren't the typical bad guy that a hero would whip out his pistol for... but my head... my thoughts, and it works just fine for me.


so long story short--- I'm gonna bring things back to the old west for this week's match-up.

so put on yer 10-gallon hats, partners.... this week, I give you....

JOHN WAYNE
vs
THE LONE RANGER

Who should a damsel in distress really count on??? Who will end up on his high horse when all is said and done? All I know, is that this town ain't big enough for BOTH of 'em.... so get to voting!


DING DING!!!

Being that I have no friggin clue about westerns, this one's gonna have to be a guess for me. But I think no one can touch John Wayne. He was invincible, even when he got old & gray.

JOHN WAYNE has my vote :-)

Peanutt said...

I'd have to say tough call! John Wayne is one tough guy so I think I'd have to say John Wayne!

Angela said...

It is seams. :)

I vote for the Lone Ranger.

Away!

(That is what he used to say, right?)

"Well let me say this PILGRIM.."
Ya gotsta vote for the DUKE!!!

I mean, Duke is a four letter word and that can't be that bad!

PLUS anybody who had to grow up with the name Marion Morrison must have had a few fights to prove he wasn't a sissy!!

The Duke had to duke it out!!

The Lone Ranger ( Brother of killed Texas Ranger Dan Reid ) had to hide his identity so the Cavendish Gang wouldn't rub him out too!!

To me, this sounds a bit wimpy!!

ERGO.. all the Porq votes go for the DUKE!!!

Melissa said...

of course I vote for John Wayne...not even a close contest!

John Wayne!

I don't know much about the Lone Ranger, but what little I do know makes me think that the Duke was a tougher man and he could whip some serious bootah!

Hey Carrie....I owe you some $$$ (it was decided that me, Katy and Maria would pay you and the others would pay Ang so you two don't have to worry about interest - then we would draw numbers later). Ang gave a price and it should be the same for you but if you could just verify the price (page 9 at our site) to make sure that is correct. If it is, I will get you a check in the mail right away!

So you think you're bad, with your rap
Well I'll tell ya pilgrim I started the crap
When you were in diapers and wetting the sheets
I was at the Ponderosa rapping to the beat

Da haahh, da haahh
Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh

Sure I rustled some cattle and tended the sheep
But my main concern was rapping to the beat
I don't bother nobody I'm a real nice guy, kinda
laid back like a, dead fly

Da haahh, da haahh
Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh
Da haahh, da haahh
Da ha-hahh ha-hahh haahh


and so forth...

Remember : John Wayne was also The Quiet Man, AKA "Trooper" Sean Thornton! And in this movie - he beats all hell outta the big Irish boyz. Ain't no white hatted pansy ass radio demigod gonna mess with that.

My vote goes to the RAPPIN DUKE!
DA HAAAAAAH DA HAAAAAAAAAHHHH

John Wayne, hands down no contest. He doesn't need a maks, a tongto, no gimics. He's just a tough old cowboy.

carlotta fun said...

I'm voting for the Lone Ranger, even though he wasn't lone. He had Tonto. And Tonto was where it was at.

Taylor said...

I'm sorry to say that I do not know who either of them are! AGH! I know, I know, laugh at me! Hmmm, so my vote is for the Lone Ranger because he has a cooler name! LOL! ;)

Pieces of Me said...

Tay, you dont know who JOHN WAYNE IS??? THE DUKE! OMG! finally speechless! :-)

The Life of Bill said...

Hate to be a "me too" but how can you bet against the Duke????? He'd wipe up the desert with the masked wonder, and make Tonto hold his hat while he did it!

Liza said...

John Wayne all the way :)

Wethyb said...

I probably have to say John Wayne although I'm not a fan of either :)

Susie said...

I have no clue on this one - I'll vote for the Duke though cause I dig his swagger.

GREAT NEW PIC of the screamer, by the way. Hang in there girl! It'll break - it always does.
