One day, a cowboy walked into a blacksmith shop that was just along the street from the Livery Stable in the one street town in the old WIld West and there he picked up a shiny new horseshoe.
Not realizing that it had just come from the forge and was still too hot to handle, he grabbed hold of the horseshoe firmly, then immediately dropped it onto the floor and as the blacksmith looked up he jammed his hand into his pocket, trying to act as if nothing had happened.
The blacksmith, noticing, asked with a grin, “Kind of hot, wasn’t it?”
“Nope”, answered the cowboy through clenched teeth, trying to act like he was really tough. “It just doesn’t take me long to look at a horseshoe”.
