We've covered plenty of fanciful imagery here, so it's nice to profile something straight out of, you know, reality.
A pig and chicken cowboy, hats pulled down low, just lazing by the fire after a full day's… work?
As The Bird hoists the rotgut, Otis offers up the traditional cowboy toast: a slab of the cook and good wishes for a manly death, painless or otherwise.
Beneath a blanket of starlight, a snake (only the third ever profiled) huddles close.
The whole thing is so realistic, you have to look closely to see that it's not a photograph; it's a drawing!
Having made that discovery, we realized that maybe some of the details of the scene are actually fictional. First off, in real life, pigs and chickens are seldom employed as cowboys. And—from everything we've ever learned—the ones who are wouldn't be propping themselves up on logs around the campfire. No, sir! They'd be smack-dab in the middle of the fire, where nothing is left to chance! And, if those livestock/cowpokes are anything like the hundreds of animals we've come to know so well, they could also be counted on to strangle the snake and drag him into the flames behind them!
Sometimes we just don't know who to believe.
