In New Mexico today, someone vandalized the tomb of Billy the Kid. The tombstone, (the grave marker not pizza), "lives" in De Baca county New Mexico where Billy was buried. This is a big concern for the authorities in De Baca because what the hell else is there in De Baca?  Along with defacing the grave, the vandals also stole three antique rifles and a shotgun from the adjacent museum. It's clear who did this: cowboy ghosts.

Billy is one of the most famous gunslingers of the wild west era.He killed something like 21 people, which is a lot considering most people never kill anyone. Billy finally ate it when the local sheriff used Billy's 13 year old Mexican girlfriend to lure him into a trap. He shot Billy in the back, like a yella bellied bastard and he was buried in De Baca County. Now their ghosts have come back to further mess with Billy. The ghost cowboys would have gotten away with it too had they not gotten greedy. That's the problem with cowboy ghosts. It's not enough that they stole, murdered, and raped in life. It's not even good enough that they can deprive the good people of De Baca county their livelihood by defacing tourist attractions. No, they have to steal rifles too. What the hell are they going to do with them anyway? Cowboy ghosts lack corporeal form. I hope the ghost of Billy the Kid rises from his defaced tomb and takes those other ghosts a Blaze of Glory.
