Guess the caption

I posted the above print with some additional Paint Shop Pro work so that it appears that one of the players is reading my book. Although, in my own mind, the artwork idea was brilliant, I could not think of a good caption for it. I asked the forum members at True West magazine to help me out and here are some of the replies.

  • "Ok, here's what Soapy said about faro..." by me.
  • "Hey! This 'centerfold' gimmick may just work out after all!" by Wacco.
  • "Ya gotta read chapter 2! Nobody but Soapy could pull that off!" by Rick Fritz.
  • "...Oh crap, all our names are in here!" by me.
  • "Gamble without me boys, this here's to damn interest'n to put down." by me.
  • "... according to Soapy, when a player calls for a 'Snowout' you have to spread all the cards face-up on the table." Does he say any thing else, yea, "when this happens, shoot all the lights out and run." by Bob Wood.
  • "...it sez, then D-U-C-K! And I don't think it means the water fowl!" by Rick Fritz.

DO YOU HAVE A BETTER ONE?
PLEASE POST IT!
