Out hyar in the West, sonny boy, we-uns take anything that'll mess up yer ride in one of them aughtymobeels right seriously. They ain't like a good hoss. A good hoss'll git ya home drunk er sober. Canyon Slim was useta his hoss carryin' him home to the bunkhouse after he'd been elbow bendin' in town. Ol' Canyon would nod off at the reins and ol' Thundermug would take him back to his bunk. Did everything but tuck ol' Canyon Slim in and kiss him good night, that horse did. Then one day he switched to one of them Model A's, fell asleep, and that danged buggy drove itself and Canyon Slim offen a thousand foot cliff. Ruint the car, but the dead buffalo at the bottom cushioned the fall enough that Canyon survived. The doc in town said he had brain damage, but nobody could tell the before and after.
