    STLToday's "Punchline" featuring OC'ers as cowboys

    After a recent article featuring Open Carry in the St. Louis area, R.J. Matson, a St. Louis Post Dispatch political catoonist has drawn the (yawn) typical "OC'ers as cowboys" drinking coffee in Starbucks cartoon.

    The cool thing is that it is in a section called "Punchline" in which readers submit captions, and Matson selects a "winner" to receive a (HOLY COW!) signed copy of the illustration with their winning caption that will be posted in the paper.

    http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion...a4bcf6878.html

    Well, after reading many typical anti-gun fearmongering comments, I have submitted a few of my own.

    Anyone want to help? Who knows.....

    ...maybe left leaning Matson will choose your caption!

    ...and then monkeys will fly out of my butt.

    I see Marc

    They got Marc's likeness down perfect. Look at the guy in blue just left of the Barrista.

    Uhm, excuse me for being critical here of the artist work but I am kind of a stickler for accuracy.

    Call me captain obvious here, but I do not see one single cowboy wearing assless chaps and did they not do it long before the motorcycle was invented?

    Criminal to miss such an important mark!

    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    The best caption I could come up with was. "My buddy says even though you city folk like to use the word 'tolerance'. You have no idea what it means."

    I see at least 6 cops in the photo. Was that all for you, or do LEOs in your area really enjoy their coffee too?

    They enjoy there coffee too. This was in downtown Seattle last Saturday, there was a huge parade going on so they were just doing parade duty. The police did visually check me out, however, no contact was made! It was perfect and as it should be.

    Matson is such a baby. He has no concept of liberty.
