Cowboy Humor

A Cowboy stops at the local watering hole for a drink. As he leaves, he finds his horse has been stolen! He goes back to the bar, handily flips his gun over his shoulder, spins it one handed over his head, fires a shot into the ceiling, then spins the gun back to the holster without looking. "Which one of you sidewinders stole my horse?" he demands forcefully. But there's no answer. "All right, I'm gonna have another beer and if my horse ain't back by the time I finish, I'm gonna do what I dun in Texas! And I don't like to have to do what I dun in Texas!" Some of the locals shift restlessly, and when he walks back outside, his horse is back! As he mounts up to leave, the bartender wanders out and asks, "Say pardner, before you go . . . what happened in Texas?" The cowboy smiled and said, "I had to walk home!"
