    We're 1 or 2 months away from finishing our next game. Back when we were finishing Betty's Beer Bar, I asked for your collaboration and everyone had lots of fun, so I want to do this again :)

    What we need are short, funny, family-friendly, non-violent cowboy insults. Lots of them. Some examples of what we want :
    Feel free to post here, email or PM your cowboy insults. What you get in exchange? Your own creations in a funny game, a mention in the credits, and a big THANKS from us :)

    Have fun!

    Looks like it's time to go back and watch all those Bugs Bunny cartoons featuring Yosemite Sam.

    Great Horny Toads!

    What's the matter, you yella?
    You put the 'ow' back in cowboy!
    I've seen more guts in a flea!
    You couldn't even muster up some guts in a sausage factory!
    I said "Draw!", not "Pee your pants!"
    Your momma teach you how to [shoot/ride/whatever]?
    I've seen schoolgirls that were better at [whatever] than you.
    This town ain't big enough for both of us...

    Ok, so I'm procrastinating:

    "You ain't good enough for a cowboy! You ain't even good enough for a cow!"
    "Your breath smells worse than my boots!"
    "Is that a hat or is your head just ugly?"
    "Horse-face!"
    "High Noon? You can't even tell time!"
    "I've seen tumbleweed smarter than you!"
    "You call that ridin'? Even Alien Flux has better control than you!" ;)

    more...

    Looks like you're chaperoning a date between a mop and the outhouse!
    You're just a chicken-skinned, yellow-belly!
    Call me again when you've grown some whiskers.
    Where'd your six-shooter come from? The dollar store?
    You owe me $3.75 for the bullets I just wasted.
    Make yourself useful and clean up all this blood.

    What does this mean?

    Just took a look at the C64 game Law of the West which is based on western dialogs.
    For example:
    Bad Boy: "You the sheriff of this stinkin' town?"
    Available answers:
    "Yes,what may i do for you?"
    "What's it to you,punk?"
    "You got a burr under your saddle,boy?"
    "Yes,son. It's a pretty nice town."

    Or:
    "You're kinda young to be carrying a gun."
    "I don't like your looks. Get outta town!"
    ... and so on

    A careful warning to the topic originator - When accepting lines of dialogue from the web in general, HAVE THEM PROOFREAD. :) (Though hopefully you knew that already. :) )

    "The only horse you can ride is on a Merry-Go-Round."
    "My Aunt May can lasso better than you and she's blind as a bat."
    "Watch it boy or you'll pushing up daisies on Boot Hill"
    "You ain't worth the salt it'd take to tan your hide"
    "I can spit further that you'd be able to [throw that rope/ride that horse/etc]."

    Some more classic Yosemite Sam:
    "Why you lilly livered varmit!"
    "fragnabbit!"
    "Euuw, I'll keel-haul ya for this!"
    "Oh ya darn crazy galloot!"
    "Why ya doggone crazy ijut!"

    I think "You couldn't hit the broad side of a barn" and "He's lower than a snake's belly" are from Western/cowboy origin.

    Here's a gem that makes little sense: "He don't know his ass from a burnt biscuit." I have a friend who has dozens of these in his everyday vocabulary. They are probably all Southern insults, though.
