  2. John Dave Rivera:

    Era un vaquero, señor, y le encantaba la tierra. Le gustaba tanto que se hizo una mujer fuera de la suciedad y se casó con ella. Pero cuando él la besó, ella se desintegró. Más tarde, en el funeral, cuando el predicador dijo: "El polvo al polvo", se echó a reír a algunas personas, y el vaquero les dispararon. En su ahorcamiento, le dijo a los otros, "voy a estar esperando en el cielo --- con un arma."
