Post-Election Humor

Posted by mcm0704 on November 4, 2020 |

As I write this, we don’t know for sure who has won the elections across the country. Lots of mail-in ballots are still to be counted. I’m still staying away from news for the most part, and I thought a little humor from Slim Randles might be in order.

The following is an older post from Slim, but still fun to read. Grab a slice of cake and Enjoy…

     When Florencio Ortiz sent off for that new slicker, everyone in town and out at the ranch knew about it. He described in detail how waterproof it was and how a cowboy just couldn’t possibly get wet with this slicker on.
     Then it came, and Florencio tied it behind the cantle of his saddle each day. And  Florencio looked to the sky for any sign of a cloud, and then patted that slicker affectionately.
      “If it rains today,” he’d say, “I’m ready. Did you know this slicker keeps the saddle dry, too?”
      Finally, during the gather, Florencio and the other hands were horseback about 10 miles from the truck, driving cows back to the home pasture. And the clouds came, thick and black and fast, and the rain poured.
      With a joyous whoop, Florencio donned the new slicker and climbed back aboard his horse. But his buddies just sat their horses and watched. Their slickers were back in the truck.
     They were amazed when Florencio dismounted, took off the slicker, tied it behind the saddle, and mounted again in the rain.
      “Why?” they asked him.
      “When my friends get wet,” he said, “I get wet!”
