    I have a friend that's half Cuban that semi-helps me learn colloquial Spanish. He found your screen name to be genius, Vaquero.

    Personally, I find Vaquero's avatar to be genius.

    Some walking-mustache from Texas once told me that--like many old-west terms--"cowboy" actually comes from Spanish, in this case "caballero" (linguistically related to the French "chevalier" or horse-rider).

    This makes a bit more sense than the literal English combination of "mature-bovine-female-immature-human-male".

    That sounds bogus to me

    The men who worked as ranch hands were usually young, or boys, and they worked with cattle, or cows

    There's also "pistolero," which would be translated as "Gunman" or "bandit" which is what my Spanish professor suggested as an alternate to caballero.

    Well, if it's simple enough for you...

    Meanwhile, why weren't the mostly-young men who chased down whales called whale-boys? How about "tree-boys" instead of lumberjacks? Most were young; most weren't named Jack. How about "perp-boys" instead of cops?

    Caballero (pronounced "ca-ba-yero") to "cowboys".

    "Simples"--right, doof?

    If not, don' really matter. I'll take the word of a walking-'stache from Texas (that's te-has to you, doof) over yourn any ol' time.

    And why aren't whalers called balenerros, or lumber jacks called árbolorros or cops called ladrónorros? Who knows?

    Hey VN did you know they're removing the word 'Gullible' from the dictionary ?

    Learn to read. They're simply adding "doofaloofa" as a synonym.
