Funny Pun – Number Eleven

Story of Rodeo Ray

This is a Western story.

It took place back in the day,

About a handsome cowboy,

His name was Rodeo Ray.

Back then Ray earned his living

Riding bulls and mean horses.

It was hazardous to his health

So he looked for other sources.

Ray was brave and Ray was bold.

With his horse he searched for gold.

One night he made his camp

On some tree-studded land.

There he was soon captured

By an Indian band.


You might ask what had Ray done?

What crime was so profound?

Unknowing, Ray made his camp

On sacred burial ground.

The Indian chief told Ray,

“White man, you’re going to die.

Since you have defiled our land,

We cannot turn a blind eye.”

Big Chief Medicine Hat

Felt sorry for the lad.

Knowing he would be killed

Made him feel a bit sad.


He said to the cowboy,

“You have three days to live.

So here is the promise

That to you I will give.

You have one wish a day

For any sort of treat.

By sunset on day three,

My son, you’ll be dead meat.”

Rodeo Ray understood

And asked them to fetch his horse.

Under these circumstances,

Ray's horse was his last resource.


Ray then embraced his horse,

Without showing any fear,

And whispered a message

Into his horse’s ear.

Then he slapped its rump

And the horse ran away.

It returned to the camp

Later in that same day.

With a beautiful blonde

Who was naked as a jay.

She joined Ray, the cowboy,

In the teepee they made hay.


The Indians were surprised.

They thought the cowboy loopy.

Instead of trying to escape,

Ray and the blonde made whoopee!

On the second day,

The chief asked Ray his pleasure.

Ray asked for his horse.

It was his greatest treasure.

Ray quickly whispered something

Right into his horse’s ear,

And sent the horse in to town.

What he said, they could not hear.


Ray's Rodeo Job

Later when the horse returned.

The Indians were mute.

Astride was a cute redhead

In just her birthday suit.

Ray took her into the teepee.

The Indians just shook their head.

This cowboy is going to die

But now he just takes her to bed.

Now the third day is at hand,

Ray’s at the end of his rope.

If the horse does not understand,

Then Ray has lost all faith and hope.

Ray asks for his mount once more,

Grabs the ears of his horsey,

Yells, “Read my lips as before.

POSSE, dammit … P-O-S-S-E!!!”

Ray's horse survived but put on a little weight.

Ray's horse survived but put on a little weight.

Indian joke (Warning! It’s a groaner).

Many moons ago two cowboys were riding across the prairie when they came across an Indian lying down with his ear on the ground. They dismounted and asked him what he was doing. The Indian said, “Two wagons, four horses, two men, two women, one small child, one cow, two goats, and one large brown and white spotted dog.”

The cowboys said, “Whoa, you can tell all that just by listening to the ground?”

“No,” said the Indian, “They ran over me half an hour ago.”

Ruby Jean from Maryland on November 24, 2017:

Hahahaha -- so great - can I share some of these on SaltyPun.com? They are too good not to!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on July 19, 2013:

Surprised, KKGals? Then I have achieved my mission! Thank you, thank you.

Susan Hazelton from Sunny Florida on July 17, 2013:

Here I thought Roy had quite a way of spending his last days. Boy was I surprised at the end.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on April 01, 2012:

Awwwwwww, PDX, that's the sweetest thing you ever said to me. Thank you, my friend. I'll try very, very hard not to tarnish!

Justin W Price from Juneau, Alaska on March 31, 2012:

drbj, people tend to have dirty minds, so, I think you're golden :-)

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on March 23, 2012:

Yes, Kelly, I, too, have heard that aphorism about having to have bad days so we could appreciate the good days. Speaking for myself, I would appreciate the good days just as much without the bad days. Who do I tell?

Happy you are above the weather again and thanks, m'luv, for the return visit. I do appreciate you.

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on March 21, 2012:

Drbj - i am back up and feeling wonderful! Thank you! It's like they say - we have to have not so good days - or how the heck would we know to appreciate all those good days?

I still read the poem again - I'm not one to lose out on a laugh if there's one to be had:) haha!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on March 04, 2012:

Any time, Rosemary, any time. You are welcome for the laughs. Yup, Ray's horse might have been hard of hearing but he did know how to deliver the goodies. I mean, goods. Thank you for laughing, m'luv.

Rosemary Sadler from Hawkes Bay - NewZealand on March 04, 2012:

Hahaha this is so funny, poor dumb horse needs his ears cleaned out. And we got a bonus too with your last joke.

I must say I laughed at Marties comment too. Lol

Thank you for the laughs

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on March 01, 2012:

I hope you are rolling on the floor that is carpeted while laughing, Martie, would hate to be responsible for your picking up splinters. Thank you for the up to the stars vote, m'luv.

Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,thud. What's that? Me laughing at your 'cops' remark so hard, you naughty girl, that my head fell off!!!

Martie Coetser from South Africa on March 01, 2012:

Whoahahahaha! I am rolling on the floor laughing :))) He-he-he...

Oh, send me that horse. Maybe he will catch the word 'cops' incorrectly.... He-he :)

drbj, I've voted you with hub and all up to the stars... :)

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 29, 2012:

Hi, Kelly, your request for cake with the punch-line has been duly noted. Not acted upon of course (like our government) but duly noted.

Sorry to hear you were feeling under the weather. Did you know that ancient expression came from the old British sailing ships? When a sailor wasn't feeling well he was confined below decks out of (under) the weather.

Delighted I gave you a chuckle with that punch line. Hope you are 'above' the weather now, m'dear.

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on February 28, 2012:

Drbj - you do deliver the best punch lines:) lol Next time - how 'bout some cake to go with it?

I am taking the day off (feeling under the weather) - I knew visiting you would give me a chuckle:)

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 27, 2012:

And I love you, Eddy, for loving it. Who says hard work doesn't pay off? Perhaps not in realm of he coin - whatever that means - but certainly in the gracious comments one receives. Especially from you, m'dear. Hope your weekend was pleasant and not too cold.

Eiddwen from Wales on February 25, 2012:

Great work and oh ow I loved it. Your obvious hard work certainly paid off.

Thanks for sharing;take care and have wonderful weekend.


drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 22, 2012:

I will share something with you, PDX. After I finished writing this pun, I had second thoughts. Would the word, posse be passe? Guess my worry was groundless. Folks appear to have received the message. Thanks for the visit.

Justin W Price from Juneau, Alaska on February 21, 2012:

boy, if i had a dollar for every time I meant to say posse...


drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 17, 2012:

I dunno, Docmo, from the looks of your avatar, methinks you may have achieved your 'P-M' goal. And you are most welcome for any laughs I can provide. I'll try to come up with some more puns - just for you.

Mohan Kumar from UK on February 16, 2012:

I always wanted to be a Posse- Magnet. I mean, I always wanted to play Cowboys and Indians. Thanks for the laughs! You are a veritable mine of these punny verses. More, more.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 15, 2012:

Your supposition may be correct, Hilary, I just hate to publish negative news. Hahahahahahaha-plop. That's me laughing so hard at your remark about the Chief and his use of Ray's horse that my head fell off.

Hillary from Atlanta, GA on February 15, 2012:

I'm still wondering if Ray made it thru after all, but i guess not :( I'm sure the Chief made clever use of a horse who could round up good posse. Cheers!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 14, 2012:

Thank you, Dex, for enjoying my wordspin. Do hope the nonstop laughing is not taking a physical toll on you, my friend. And thank you for the Up!

Dexter Yarbrough from United States on February 14, 2012:

Dr. BJ! Another delightful spin on words! I just can't stop laughing! Voted up, up and away!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 14, 2012:

What a delight, Alastar, to find someone who enjoys Eddie Cantor - the comedian with those 'Goo-Goo' eyes. He was one of the first comedians who made a successful transition from the vaudeville stage to the movies. They don't make 'em like that any more.

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on February 13, 2012:

Ha ha Drbj! I've loved Eddie Cantor for a long time. Seen all his Goldwyn movies 'cept for one or two. Even turned my little nieces and nephews on to him. One of the nephews can't get enough of the color ice-cream factory fantasy in Kid Millions!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 13, 2012:

Anyone, Paradise, who enjoys and quotes my punchlines, is a friend of mine, m'dear. Thanks for the LOL at "Posse, dammit, Posse!" Still giggling at that one myself.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 13, 2012:

Hi, Alastar. You surprised me with your quote of the lyrics from the very old Eddie Cantor song, "Making Whoopee." Musta been your grandpa told you 'bout that song.

I promise to keep on making these 'awesome puns' as you requested, my friend. Thank you for the 'wicked clever.'

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 13, 2012:

Thank you for visiting, mamalila - delighted to have you stop by and to learn that you enjoy my hubs. Providing the 'cheer' was my pleasure. So you laughed for days at the Brad and Angie date hub? Do hope that did not result in any health complications.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 13, 2012:

Thank you, frog, for that vote of confidence! I didn't know you knew how to speak 'cowboy.' Yee-Haw backatcha.

Paradise7 from Upstate New York on February 13, 2012:

LOL! "Posse, dammit, Posse!" What a great punchline!

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on February 13, 2012:

Another season, another reason, for makin' whoopie. And he ain't talkin' 'bout the cavalry either! You just keep on makin' these awesome puns Drbj. Wicked clever madam!

JNSimmons from Washington, DC on February 13, 2012:

I do enjoy your hubs first thing in the morning. I laughed for days from the Brad and Angie date video. Thanks for the cheer!

The Frog Prince from Arlington, TX on February 12, 2012:

YEE HAW!!! You go Girl!

The Frog

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Delighted you enjoy coming to my Hubs, b. The feeling is mutual. Yes, I was feeling a bit devilish with this one -happy I didn't let you down with the punchline.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Do I remember Mr. Ed? I've been around so long, amillar, I remember when Mr. Ed was a colt called Eddie. Thanks for the visit and the clever comments.

b. Malin on February 12, 2012:

Oh Drbj, you are so Funny and Clever...And I just got the PUNCH LINE...YOU Devil you! Always Love coming to read your HUBS!

amillar from Scotland, UK on February 12, 2012:

Well at least he didn't bring back a Siamese posse. (They're too ill natured). Or a posse of flowers (half eaten of course; a horse is a horse of course. Do you remember Mr Ed?)

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Hi, Alicia. So you researched the Internet to understand the punchline, m'dear. Now I am really intrigued. What did you type in the search box I am wondering? Could be the inspiration for a whole new hub. Right?

Thanks for loving the end joke and being entertained by the pun.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Hi, mary. Delighted I gave you a great laugh today ... again. I'll try to keep them coming since you love them. I just have to remember that for inspiration I must stay off my meds!

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Hi, pras. Thank you for enjoying this pun and the 'well done and the up.' (Maybe not as unusual as your story about the boy with night vision though.)

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Hi, christopher. Yes, I know all about your sheltered upbringing and I did give some thought to not publishing this funny pun since I did not want to shock you. But then I realized anyone who loves classical music like you do has a superior understanding of human nature. Right?

You are spot on. Ray turned a bad situation around, maybe even upside down? Thanks for enjoying the ending joke, too. I'll try to keep them coming ... or going.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Thank you for the hahaha, fp. The funniest yet, eh? Compared to what? No, forget that, just foolin'.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Hi, Ruby. You are so right. Ray's horse needed hearing aids but they only came in small, medium and large. No stallion size available.

I am so proud to be named your favorite joke teller of all times. It is an honor I will not soon forget. What was your name again, dear?

Oh, and thanks for the Bravo, Bravo, too.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Thanks for having fun with this punny poem, Linda. Delighted you enjoyed the rodeo. And thanks for the Up and funny.

drbj and sherry (author) from south Florida on February 12, 2012:

Ah, Nellieanna - you are a strong, silent woman ... but that G-R-I-N is worth a thousand words, m'dear. Thank you.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on February 12, 2012:

I loved the joke at the end, drbj, but I was annoyed with myself at first for not understanding the pun, since your joke hubs are so funny! So I did some research on the Internet and now I understand!! Thanks once again for a very entertaining article. I'm looking forward to your next pun hub.

Mary Hyatt from Florida on February 12, 2012:

You've done it again! How in the world do you think of this stuff????? You gave me a great laugh today. Keep these coming, I love them!

prasetio30 from malang-indonesia on February 12, 2012:

Again...you come up with fun and I really enjoy this hub. Well done and rated up!


Christopher Antony Meade from Gillingham Kent. United Kingdom on February 12, 2012:

I had to think about it for a minute. But then I did have a very sheltered upbringing. I'm laughing now, mind you. At least the cowboy knew how to make the best of a bad situation.

The joke at the end was very good as well.

"Keep em comin".

Feline Prophet on February 11, 2012:

Hahaha...quite possebly the funniest yet! :)

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on February 11, 2012:

I am LMAO. This is so funny..The poor horse needed a hearing aid HaHa..You are without a doubt my favorite joke teller of all times..Bravo, Bravo..

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on February 11, 2012:

This pun was lots of fun! I felt like I was right there at the rodeo. UP! Funny!

Nellieanna Hay from TEXAS on February 11, 2012:
