    No, just the delivery method. You’ll be in the other room….

    Can you say, “oops”, in Spanish? I knew you could, boys and girls.
    Tabasco should be renamed “Mighty Mouse”, HERE I COME TO SAVE THE DAY…….
    And I think the coyote is about to either have a Comin’ to Jesus Moment, or he’s about to have an eternally long conversation with Dios.

      Somehow I sort of see him going the other direction, and probably being astonished at how fast he gets airmailed to Old Scratch.

        I see him wondering out loud, (in Spanish, natch) “Where the hell?” and a big RRREEEEAAAALLLLYYYYY UGLY GUY with horns and sharp teeth and a tail and a big ol’ smile on his face is sayin’, “Exactly!”

      A little late to find God, Amigo!

        Better late than never I suppose. 😉

    • Interventor

      More likely a short talk with an old Jewish fisherman. Then, an eternal conservation with Lucifer.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Maybe the coyote will break Hussain Bolt’s Olympic 100 yard speed record. ………

    • Old Codger

      Don’t matter one bit. Humans cannot run faster’n an enraged bull. On horseback, maybe; but afoot? No fekking way?

    Clean up on Aisle 4… possible haz-mat situation…

    “My God… it’s full of horns!”

  • Punta Gorda

    OT… but in the book “Some Birds don’t Fly,” the author relates the story of Curly and the Pink cloud, where Curly, finding himself down wind of a toxic cloud vented from a failed Wac Corporal missile that failed to launch, rand so fast that the protagonist couldn’t catch him with a jeep as he headed out through the dunes and sagebrush.

  • Punta Gorda

    BTW, that little. 38 isn’t gonna do much against a pissed off Texas Longhorn

    • Punta Gorda

      If you don’t get a head shot Pedro, you’re as good as dead.

      • Kafiroon

        Having seen a lot of cow skulls, and what it took to penetrate, that p-shooter is not going to faze most cows. Now Tabasco on the other hand, is no cow. And has a nice rack protecting a lot of skull.

        • eon

          African guides say that a frontal head shot on a Cape Buffalo is a losing proposition. That horn boss and his skull deflect anything up to .460 Weatherby like they were BBs.

          Trying the same thing on a hippo is WLNF (a Whole Lot of No Fun), too.

            Head shot on a cape buff takes a 50BMG and still has to be well placed. It’s not uncommon for a pissed off buff with both front shoulders broken from a broadside shot to charge their assailants and then run off into the brush. Makes for a real sporty tracking opportunity.

            Bring enough gun!

          • Interventor

            Like elephants and rhinos, Cape Buffalo are best brought down with a head shot to the brain using a solid steel round (copper wash to protect the barrel). Popular for such are .458 Winchester Magnums and older .500 Nitro Express. Saw a box of the latter recently at the local gun store.

          • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable!

            Was it “Karamoja” Bell that was known for capping African elephants with well placed head shots with a relatively small caliber? I guess angle of shot and a good knowledge of your targets anatomy is key.

      • John

        It will take a special kind of head shot, one that enters the eye and follows the optic nerve to the brain.
        I doubt if Pedro has either the knowledge or the courage to try that.

    • markm

      Shooting the bull with that will only make it angrier – if it notices.

  • Ozymandius

    “If you shoot him, you’ll just make him mad” …. Blazing Saddles

    • Pamela

      Mad is better than dead

      • eon

        Tabasco mad probably equals them dead. And he’s already honked; they’re on his range and messing with his “cows”. (And yes, bulls really do think like that.)

        Think about a metric ton plus of high-speed, very torqued-off muscle that hits you, flips you, then pivots and decides to tapdance on you for a while.

        “Ouch” doesn’t begin to describe it.

          Yeah, there was just a story about a “famous” one-eyed matador in Spain that got scalped by a fighting bull, who had been injured by the picadors in the usual way, and still almost took the guy’s head off. “Sometimes the bull, he wins” as the punch line goes. In this matadors case, the bulls had won quite a lot. 38 various injuries (including the loss of the eye) from previous less-than-entirely-successful fights.

          • Interventor

            The Army hospital in Pamplona is considered one of the best treating puncture wounds. Have a bit of close knowledge of that from decades ago — not the puncture wound.

        • Pamela

          The thought of Tabasco doing the Flamenco on their heads has a certain joy to it.

  • Looking forward to the colorful countryside.

  • JTC

    OTOH, as has been mentioned here and occurred recently right thar in the big T, rattlesnakes can still kill with their heads chopped off…want to be sure the four-legged feral swine thereabouts properly dispose of the remains of these two-legged ones after Tabasco does his thing.

    Oh, and 8% in the next 6 days (1.33% per diem)? Yeah we can do that y’all.

    • Interventor

      In Africa, everything tries to kill you. In Australia, a lot things try to kill you. In Texas, a lot of things kill the stupid.

    • MasterDiver

      Just put in for another $50.00. C’mon folks, we can do it!

  • Punta Gorda

    Here’s the wuestion… will Suzy, who is unfamiliar with the soon to arrive carnage critter, make the situation more confusing for all parties by her reaction? The bull will likely key in on the fleeing Suzy as yet one more target to deal with unless Sam intervenes to halt his rage… or the doggies show up to distract him. They can probably take a few hits before going off-line.

    • Punta Gorda

      But it’s gonna be a mess. Jeeves may have to be restored just to help pick up the peices.

  • Interventor

    Most likely, the two coyotes are hoping each can out run the other and that the bull will be satisfied with playing with the slowest one.

  • gruundehn

    Everyone is expecting the bull, but the twist is that it is the dogs who arrive.

    • TomZ

      I saw that a couple of minutes ago.
      The wuff a couple of days ago made me think it was Tabasco coming.
      Maybe it is Tabasco AND the dawgs.
