Skidge Moon: The rogue gang


Kudos to Mike and friends for their horse adventure (“Ride spurs nostalgia,” Dec. 13 Steamboat Today). Everyone that I’ve spoken with has been full of laughter, something much needed during our time of high unemployment, foreclosures and many businesses struggling to survive.

What I don’t understand is that every weekday night years ago, someone would say, “Who was that masked man?” but no one Tasered the Lone Ranger as he rode off.

Skidge, maybe Silver had mediation skills... so no episode of "the Lone Ranger vs Lone Taser" made the cut.

The Lone Ranger is captured by Indians. The Indian Chief informs the Ranger that the tribe will execute him in three days. However, as the Ranger is an honorable enemy, the Chief will grant the Ranger three requests; one per day.

For his first wish, the Ranger asks to speak to his horse. Silver is brought to the Ranger, who whispers into the horse's ear. Silver gallops away, and returns that night, with a gorgeous blonde on his back. The blonde dismounts, and spends the night in the Ranger's tent.

On day two, the Ranger again asks to speak with Silver. Once again, the Ranger whispers into the animal's ear. Silver races away and disappears over the horizon. Later that night, Silver returns with a breathtaking brunette, even more stunning than the blonde. She dismounts and spends the night in the Ranger's tent.

On day three, the Ranger asks again for Silver. Once the animal is before him, he grabs Silver's head with both hands, and shouts: "For the last time - bring POSSE!"

It shall not surprise me if this contribution is deleted.
