Fun: Latigo Flint, Gunslinger

I was hitting random blogs, trying to figure out if there was a way to apply my own style sheet to the new Blogger comment system, (there doesn't seem to be) when I ran across the blog of Latigo Flint, the greatest quickdraw the world has ever known.

It recently occurred to Latigo Flint that one of these days he could be called out by some upstart quickdraw looking to make a name for himself - and as the challenger, it would be well within the rights of the little punk to stipulate that the combatants wear rollerblades.

Latigo Flint is the quickest quickdraw the world has ever known. He can slap thigh and shuck iron so fast that Aaron Copland would be inspired to compose again... from beyond the frickin' grave.

But Latigo Flint does not rollerblade. It had never even crossed Latigo Flint's mind to touch a rollerblade, much less strap it to his foot. And this is a potential weakness - Latigo Flint recognizes this with grim clarity. The quickdraw of yesteryear, beyond his prodigious skill with a firearm, needed only to ensure he possessed the supplementary skills of walking, running, crouching, squinting, horseback riding, spitting indifferently and moseying. We live in a very different era now - an era in which the specter of gunfight failure demands I learn to rollerblade.

I was debating the wisdom of including a link to it here, as some of the posts, perhaps, wander just a little over the funny-but-too-offensive line. But then I got to his field dressing post, and after laughing aloud for about 5 minutes, knew I had to share.

A really funny post on Latigo Flint's blog - Orlando Bloom = bad wingman.
