    An interesting idea from @stevena198301...

    Soooooooo... here it is!

    How about we open nominations. Let's try to focus upon the idea being to recognize dubious "achievement", not debate.

    Be assured that this is a work in process, and rules and policy will evolve as I see fit.

    Fire at will!

    Shelby Teague, Fort Morgan, Colo., a Kansas State University agriculture graduate returned to her family's farming and ranching operation. Teague cited historic examples of African American and female "cowboys" who helped shape the west on her social media post in support of the University of Wyoming

    One faculty member at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyo., does not agree that "The World Needs More Cowboys." The Laramie Boomerang in Laramie, Wyo., reported that Associate Professor Christine Porter believes the slogan will "embarrass" the university outside the state of Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain west and lacks inclusivity for those who "identify as female."

    We call that a "bull ring" in Texas.

    Still...she can rope and ride me bareback anytime if she ever wants to jump the corral fence.

    I read somewhere awhile back that Slate is pretty much a leftist dog whistler media outlet.

    Yerp. But they pass it off as "news" on a daily basis. So, rather than argue for/against it's merit, posting up dumb articles by them is a lot more entertaining for me. :D
