I've mentioned this before but all the Halloween talk reminded me and I still think it's worth remarking on.

There is a cowboy in Dracula.

Dracula. Has a cowboy in it. A cowboy.

And AND the cowboy is the one who kills Dracula. With a knife. A cowboy stabs Dracula with a knife and that's how Dracula dies. He gets stabbed by a cowboy.

A cowboy.

@Taweret They should make a Cowboys Vs. Dracula movie now, there's precedent

@Taweret yes his name was Jessie James. I saw the movie. It was really good and not boring at all

@Taweret Ah Quincy, the American. Always waving his gun around, never hitting anything

@Taweret I'm pretty sure there are Nepali khukuris in Dracula too - isn't that what the cowboy ends up using?

@Taweret As I always mention, none of the Dracula movies give Quincey Morris his due. He's Lucy's best boyfriend.

@Taweret There are a lot of odd things about that novel. I heard a passage from it the other day and it was all like

With that he pulled open his shirt, and with his long sharp nails opened a vein in his breast. When the blood began to spurt out, he took my hands in one of his, holding them tight, and with the other seized my neck and pressed my mouth to the wound, so that I must either suffocate or swallow some

Could it be that “50 Shades of Gray” was a more accurate portrayal of vampires than anything published after Bram’s novel?

@Taweret Reminds me of all the memes that you could have Samurai meet Cowboys to hang out with Pirates (and Dracula apparently) and have calendar years where that was historically possible if not probable.
