Factual error: Wilford Brimley's saddle horn is wrapped in inter tube rubber, just as modern day teamropers.

Rock Mullaney: God invented the whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world.

Rock Mullaney: A Frenchman, a German, and an Irishman go into a saloon and order whiskeys. The drinks arrive and there's a fly in each one.
