"Bonanza at the Tinhorn Buffet"

adapted from a stage by "Brasshopper"
Everglades Rifle and Pistol Club


You and your hands've been on the trail for three months, drivin' a bunch of ornery cows without any fit grub since the cook got snake bit. You're all hungry enough to eat a whole horse, even if it ain't cooked!

Some tinhorn fresh out from New York City has opened an "All-You-Can-Eat" buffet in town, and you've all put down your cash and've pretty much taken over the place. Just as you and your ramrod, Bart, are about to arm wrestle for the last chicken wing, the owner comes in and sees all his steam trays are empty and his profits have gone up in smoke.

He starts jabbering "Buffet closed! You go now! You go!"

You and Bart look at each other and say "He said 'All you can eat'!

Time to teach this New Yorker what that means! There won't be an unbroken dish in the place when you're done…
