    I am not a cowboy.
    I am a signpainter.
    I own a house on commercial property.
    I work out of my garage.
    I too loathe the quickie-stickies.
    Customers seem to love ’em, unfortunately.

    To me, a cowboy is (usually female too!)
    someone whose hubby buys a system on Ebay,
    she cuts Calvin Peeing stickers on her dinette set
    in the trailer while listening to the Dixie Chicks,
    then goes to the local fair/flea market
    wearing Daisy Dukes with a camel toe &
    sells this crap to the over-eager public.

    She has stickers plastered over her primer-covered Ford Pinto,
    advertising magnetics for $29.95 and 4x8s for $75.
    Most of her stuff is made from coroplast.
    Her alphabets consist of Hellvetica, Comic Sans,
    and Old English & Brush Script which are all caps.

    She has a distortion module and she’s not afraid to use it.
    She stocks red, white, and black calendered vinyl.
    Most of her money is spent at the tanning place,
    because her hubby has a real job at the factory.
    She thinks Mike Stevens was a talk show host.
    She wouldn’t know a good sign if it bit her in the ass.

    Just my 2¢!
