The Origin of Chapstick

The old cowhand came riding into town on a hot, dry, dusty day. The local
sheriff watched from his chair in front of the saloon as the Cowboy wearily
dismounted and tied his horse to the rail a few feet in front of the sheriff.

"Howdy, stranger..."

"Howdy, Sheriff..."

The cowboy then moved slowly to then back of his horse, lifted its tail, and placed a big kiss
were the sun don't shine. He dropped the horse's tail, stepped up on the walk, and aimed
towards the swinging doors of the saloon.

"Hold on, Mister..."


"Did I just see what I think I just saw?"

"Reckon you did, Sheriff...I got me some powerful chapped lips..."

"And that cures them?"

"Nope, but it keeps me from lickin' em!
