Maverick? (A NON-Political Statement)

Now, these are the original, "real" Mavericks:

"We've heard of Lucas McCain, but John McCain?
Nope, we ain't never heard o'him."

Just sayin'.

Thanks for your time.

"This here's Lucas McCain, and
I done approved me this here post!"

NOUN:

1) An unbranded range animal, especially a calf that has become separated from its mother, traditionally considered the property of the first person who brands it.
2) One that refuses to abide by the dictates of or resists adherence to a group; a dissenter.
ADJECTIVE:

Being independent in thought and action or exhibiting such independence: maverick politicians; a maverick decision.

I don't think we needed a definition, Rantz and Sarah were just joking. McCain's been calling himself a maverick for quite awhile.

Sarah said...

What? Who's John McCain?

Larry said...

Jonny,
You were apparently not a part of the drinking game that we had going on. Everytime the words Alaska, Maverick, Gwen, Bush Administration, and Joe Six Pack were mentioned, we'd all take a shot. It makes for a very humorous debate. We're already listing out 5 phrases to use for the next debate. It's amazing how much good debate we missed when actually reading the transcript the next day. We all thought the debate would end up with Palin calling Biden "The Presidential Puppetmaster" and Biden calling Palin "Trophy VP". It's too bad you have to be a party pooper to the whole thing. Thanks for ruining our fun.

I'm still drunk

Larry said...

and here I thought Canadians knew how to handle their liquor. I want to be called a maverick too. I'm buying myself a cowboy hat.

Sarah said...

Absolutely no objections to you buying a cowboy hat.....

There's a new sheriff in town. I don't want to see any trouble going on in here or I'm going to have to whip out my six shooter.

jonnycake said...

Larry, I get it now. I thought you were saying that Sarah and Rantz didn't understand the maverick thing, like they didn't know the meaning of the word. Sorry, I didn't try to ruin your game! Please don't whip out your six-shooter, or anything else!

Ooooooo!

Now there's a Maverick Cowboy...

Yippie IE Ki Ah little doggy!

I love them cowboys.

Too bad Cowboy Larry is taken. Lucky girl, indeed!

Back to our game.

I got a black hat. I like to play the bad girl. Because bad girls have all the fun.

Picture a Mae West Cowgirl Mama Maverick.

Sorry... Ishat bows head.. Too much political drinking games. I am still a little punchy.
