“Cowboys don’t take baths—they just dust off”

"Real cowboys don’t take baths—they just dust off” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many posters. The line has been printed on many wall decorations for boys’ rooms and bathrooms.

“Cowboys don’t take baths every day” was cited in print in 1993. “Cowboys don t take baths, they just dust off” was cited in 2007.

As a boy, I remember that one of my favorite words was “why.” Why is the sky blue? Why do I have to go to school? Why is it bedtime? Why do I have to wear underwear? Cowboys don’t take baths, so why do I have to take one? My mom would patiently answer my endless questions. I was full of wonder and wanted to understand things.
