The last of the wild frontiersmen. Riders of the asphalt plains, herding the silver buffalo. A tough breed, accustomed to all types of hardships, including low pay, long hours, the occassional trampling by a wayward "silver buffalo". Usually have legendary names like Wee Hee Willy, Scarecrow or Whippo. A vanishing breed, being replaced by the electronic cart pushers.
Wee Hee Willy, the toughest of the cart cowboys, had rounded up the bulk of the herd at Shop Rite, but needed Whippo to ride shotgun on some stragglers in the parking lot.
