Get a cowboy mug for your Uncle Callisto.
1. in the American Old West, a tough, honest and practical summa bitch who worked to get paid, and then spent all of his money on whiskey and women at the end of the trail. Cowboys are honest and ethical, but know how to have a good time, too.

2. an athlete or fan of Oklahoma State University. Much like the first definition, OSU Cowboys are also tough, honest and practical as well as fiercely loyal to their school and its athletic programs. Come on down to our home on the range-Stillwater, OK-and we'll show you some hospitality you won't experience anywhere else...unless you're a sooner.
My heroes have always been cowboys; they're tough and practical, and they don't suffer fools (e.g., sooners).
