Politically Correct Encounters

I was at the grocery store today grabbing a few items and noticed a bunch of cowboys complete with their black dusters, cowboy hats and boots. Once again, it is rodeo season in Pocatello. Cowboys come from far and wide to participate every March. It got me wondering what the politically correct term for cowboy is. I looked it up. Sure enough--there really is a term: Bovine Control Officers.

Here are a few more I thought were interesting:

A Criminal - unsavory character
