Some claim the below picture is a genuine image of Curly Bill Brocius, while others dispute this, saying that Curly actually looked more like Gordon McCrea.
Why am I not surprised that you came up with the definitive Curly Bill photo?
people like murray have turned this site into a joke by posting crap like this, most of us try to take our passion of the old west seriously and not make a joke of it
Don't take anything too seriously, not yourself, and not something from 140 years ago. Without some funning, life would be hard to bear.
Murray, there are just some people who can't take a joke and others who are so into whatever passion they have, they can't even put their own photos on their pages. I'm waiting to see a deep and serious discussion on this site about what kind of buttons BTK had on his trousers: where they were manufactured and with what material. Is it really that important? Guess I need to pay attention to the BTK forum here because I haven't seen anything about the Lincoln County War and what impact THAT had on people. Take it away, folks?
murray, you are right, i was wrong, things should be taken lightly, but the one below your response and above this one.... huh? that was dumb
Yeah, I'm the certified village idiot.
Sue, where do I go to get such a certificate?
As I found from sitting in many college faculty meetings most of the professional and intellectually gifted resort to fun to both let off steam and because they are naturally damned funny people.If someone is over earnest he'd better be either 20 years old or a religious fanatic.
My ongoing research hasn't revealed the maker of the buttons on Billy's trousers but I have found out the color-they were Bonney blue.
Anthony, you can always be counted on as the go-to-guy for Nineteenth Century clothing. You're also a damned funny man.
Murray, certification for Village Idiot is a long and arduous process involving careful study of the Absurd followed by a written thesis and oral presentation before a jury of one's Peers. Only other idiots are qualified to certify that which is "dumb." Sorry Murray.
If I start each morning by putting jello in my sneakers before putting them on I'll be funny.I find that if you feel funny you ARE funny!
