He eyes up the customers in the saloon, most of whom are fairly drunk on cheap whisky, and furthermore they look like a pretty dangerous and unpleasant lot.

Plucking up his courage, as sheriffs do, he stands tall in the doorway of the saloon, hoping that his silhouette makes him look bigger and braver than he actually feels.

The sheriff shouts for everyone’s attention, the saloon falls silent.

“Has anyone seen Brown Paper Jake?”, he asks in a long drawl.

“What’s he look like?”, asks one shoddy looking cowboy.

“Well”, replies the Sheriff. “He wears a brown paper hat, a brown paper waistcoat, a brown paper shirt, brown paper boots, brown paper pants, and a brown paper jacket.”

“So what’s he wanted for?”, asks the same cowboy.

“Rustlin’…”, replies the Sheriff.
