    What, never heard of a bromance?


  • July 3, 2017 at 12:08 am

    And you know you just bumped their ratings at “The Ranch” Chris.

    Least they could do would be drop some change in the jar?

    Chris, you magnificent bastard. I can’t wait to read your book! (Redvolution)

    Funny thing is, Sam Elliott was a very handsome young man when he was a recurring character on “Mission Impossible”.

    But it’s now, when he looks like some old cowboy, that all the women go wild.

    Whoda thunk?

    • July 3, 2017 at 10:50 am

      Check out Sam Elliott’s work in “Road House” and “Up in the Air”. Talk about mustache rides!

        John D. Egbert

        Also check out his starring turn as Travis McGee in the movie version of John D. MacDonald’s “Darker Than Amber.” Not as good as the book, but his work was fine.

      Cute boys are a dime a dozen on the silver screen and the small screen. Distinguished American gentlemen, maybe not so much.

    So, I’m fairly sure the ladies’ inner thighs are rinsed clean now. And I mean self rinsed….

      More importantly, it appears Skye’s boobs have returned to their normal awesome size.

  • July 3, 2017 at 12:25 am

    ahhh –HA!

  • July 3, 2017 at 12:28 am

    Like Clint Eastwood, Sam is an alpha male. He’s just not in your face like old Clint is usually. Watch out though if you get him mad. Check out “The Ranch” on Netflix. Probably pretty close to how we imagine the real Sam Elliot is with a lot of inside baseball humor among the guest stars and topics.

  • July 3, 2017 at 12:43 am

    Save a Horse. Ride a Cowboy. He can even wear spurs…

    • July 3, 2017 at 8:31 am

      “He can even wear spurs…”

  • July 3, 2017 at 12:53 am

    I remembered that Wade and Sam were damn near stone identical, I just never thought we’d see him again actually. Outstanding, Mr. Muir.

  • July 3, 2017 at 1:24 am

    Both Zed and Sam Elliott… a gift for the female DBD readers…

    Sam and Skye seem to have forgotten about their muddy situation. Most ladies would be trying to cover up their “assets” but clearly the squeee disarmed them.

    • July 3, 2017 at 8:33 am

      Honestly, ladies. Would you prefer those two men in the mud? Having to clean up with a hose?
      Just wonderin’. 🙂

      • July 3, 2017 at 11:35 am

        Go away. Don’t bother me. I have a movie playing in my head that is steaming up my glasses.

      • July 3, 2017 at 12:05 pm
        MAJ Arkay

        Yup. And I don’t wear glasses, but they’re steaming up…

  • July 3, 2017 at 3:04 am

    Sam Elliot + feminine women = Squeee! Yep, that’s right. Both my late wife and present SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) would do the same thing if they met Mr. Elliot. My late wife did meet Tom Selleck while we were in Hawaii and she did the OMG! OMG! SQUEEGEE! along with all the other women in the office. Better than any aphrodisiac I know.
    Really enjoy Mr Elliot in his movies and shows and fell if the times were right he could probably be as popular as John Wayne in his heyday.
    Greg B: Freshly cleaned inner thighs are pretty much a safe bet under these circumstances.

    • July 3, 2017 at 10:46 am

      Nice Leo McKern, ‘Rumpole Of The Bailey’ (SWMBO) reference, Z-Man.

      haven’t heard it in a long time.

      • July 3, 2017 at 1:35 pm

        Originally from H. Haggard Rider’s She.

  • July 3, 2017 at 3:25 am


    I got my “Squeeeee!” from Skye. And even one from Sam.

    I was right. For the wrong reason.

    I was thinking more of the town’s Sheriff whose name I forget. And who Skye had a fling with before heading to Washington State and her “Resistor” gig.

    And when it comes to Wade (Mr. Sam Elliott). The ladies just can’t help themselves.

    Well done, Chris!

    • July 3, 2017 at 8:36 am

      The man’s name is Tucker. As in Tucker’ in nice and tight.

        Heh, heh, tuck what in nice and tight?


      • July 3, 2017 at 10:42 am

        Sam and Skye ain’t the only dirty girls ’round these parts. 😉

      • July 3, 2017 at 10:42 am

        Thanks, Pamela. I’ll remember that.

        So, when is Skye going to borrow Sam’s ‘Cuda and bust out a tail light. Just to arrange a “chance meeting” with Tucker?

      • July 3, 2017 at 11:42 am

        Yikes! If Skye were to break a tail light in order to do that, I’d be having her hide tacked to the barn door. OEMs are expensive.

      • July 3, 2017 at 5:32 pm

        Skye must learn how to remove the actual little light in the socket of the tail light. One must maintain proper respect for such history as the ‘Cuda. There is a right way that Skye must learn.

    I loved “The Ranch”…I am not an Ashton Kutcher fan, but he does play the dingy pretty-boy so well. And Sam Elliot is absolutely deadpan in his delivery of one-liners…which makes them more funny.

    Now, of course the question is, how do we get those two dirty, dirty girls clean in the most drawn out manner? (No pun intended…ok maybe a little)

    Hopefully with another full Sunday length panel to celebrate ‘Murica tomorrow?


  • July 3, 2017 at 7:46 am

    Ah, the perks of being a DBD fan. 🙂

    Wade/Sam Elliot/Zed… Alpha Male soup for ladies. Well done, Chris.

  • July 3, 2017 at 11:34 am

    That Elliott dude has my same hair color. And ‘stache/chin beard. He’s just like me.

    You know, if I was lanky. And had a deep gravelly voice. And more hair. And money.

    Other than that, twins!

    • July 3, 2017 at 11:36 am

      So, Unca Walt…they’re the alpha soup, I’m the cracker! 😉

    • July 3, 2017 at 5:37 pm

      Yeah! Yeah! He looks just like you. Twins. That’s one of the reasons why you keep who you have. That’s the ticket. As long as she keeps seeing it that way. Carry on.

    • July 3, 2017 at 7:12 pm

      He did a fantastic job as RSM Plumley in “We Were Soldiers.”

    I don’t “Squee!” Ever. But for Sam Elliott, I’d seriously consider it.

    Formwiz, Sam’s been on the top of my “seriously hot” list since I first saw him in a low-budget movie called “Frogs.” But some people age like fine wine and get so very much sexier than in their younger days. Like Sam.

    Who’s the other old guy? I thought Wade was dead.

    • July 3, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      The old guy is Sam Elliott from Shadow Riders, Sacketts , Shakedown and Ghost Rider fame. The tall drink of water who mosied back to the DD for a rather timely visit.

  • July 3, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    Two Sams?

  • July 3, 2017 at 2:18 pm

    Check out S.E. in We were Soldiers with Mel Gibson.

  • July 3, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    My personal favourite is Sam Elliot as Major General John Buford in the movie Gettysburg.

      I’m watching that movie now…he is so damn awesome.

    Sam’s in Tombstone too, talk about a mustache-a-palooza. That’s something the eurowenies just don’t get, that the west shaped America, when we hit our Golden Age it was firmly embedded by the pulp fiction and the early silent movies.

    The true American male full of hard tack, barbed wire and grit still exists silently watching from the back of the saloon as the man-bun posers shrill and dance like fawning publicans. Thee silent few know their time is coming to step out of the shadows. When they do it will be Cowboys and everybody.

    And Tom Mix wept.

    • July 3, 2017 at 4:15 pm

      It takes hard men to do the difficult job of keeping Freedom free and unshackled for all.

  • July 3, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    Sam Elliot is the ABSOLUTE shit!

  • July 3, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    Ahh, Virgil Earp; “Don’t worry darlin’, I still got one good arm to hold you with”.

  • July 3, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    Sam’s face was all muddy yesterday.

    What metamorphosis could have washed it?

    I hate to be the skunk at the party, but I was somewhat dismayed with Netflix’s “The Ranch” series dishonest and bigoted treatment of hunters and gun owners in Season 1. The premise of the series is that the family is ostensibly representative of a western ranch family. As such they would have grown up learning how to responsibly handle firearms, and how to hunt and fish properly.

    However, there was an episode where Aston Kutcher is waving his pistol around sideways like a “gangsta” and shooting his TV. Later, there was an episode where the whole family was preparing for the annual opening of duck season as an important family tradition. However, when they actually opened the hunt, they behaved like the worst slob hunters.

    IOW, the writers couldn’t resist working in their anti-hunting and anti-gun agenda in their portrayal of the family. It was all very disappointing.
