In another life, I am a crazy old gringo
I think it's about time for me to relocate south of the border.

No, seriously, I have a plan. I'll set myself up to raise goats and make handmade cheese to sell to an upscale American market. To add to the product's mystique I will insist on carrying all of my cheese to market on the back of a burro towing a baby goat on a rough hemp rope. All I need now is a clever name.

(Help me.)

Whatever name you choose, start with 'Poncho.'

On a side note, while spending my unemployed days being spoonfed sensationalist journalism on CNN, I saw a cute little spot about goats. Goats that pass out and fall down when they get too excited.

Always carry a pocket full of smelling salts, Poncho. Always.

Pancho and his Tennessee Scares

Oh, I fully intend on having membership in the International Fainting Goat Association. (Thanks, Betsy...)

Shhh... The cheese man cometh.

I wonder if I could become a legend like the chupacabra.

your slogan can be "goat ropers need love too".

I'm guessing that there's one of your stories in this...

You just need to call it...

TACOS!

Re: You just need to call it...

I think that would just confuse the goats.

Wouldn't I have to be all wild and hairy? And fight a lot?

Oh wait... that would be SWEET.

"Honest Hombre's Heavenly Chosen Cheshire Cheese."

The trick is, the goat is the Honest Hombre!

Priceless

"Talk to the goat."

Timing's right.


Hats!

You could hide in this one. If you stay there long enough, in that smoldering heat, you'll at least smell like cheese.

Or you could try to hide under it, that is.

You could hang out with this guy and eat stuff from the desert.

But all this has a certain appeal, gringo.


But in all seriousness, yes it is another one. I see it clearly. Not just cheese but peppers.

Re: Timing's right.

Are they decorative peppers, floating in oil in fanciful glass bottles?
