Two poetic cowboys brought some major laughs to Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show when they recited their original, and downright hilarious, poetry! Rod McQueary and Colin Sweeten brought their audience to new levels of laughter when their comical twists and blunt nature served as the perfect addition to their routines!

Taking the ropes and diving into his opening piece, McQueary admitted to Carson, “Most of [my poems] have something to do with my past experiences, and this one is a little more recent…” Explaining that as you age in life your health becomes a more conscious idea that you struggle to preserve, the poet began to recall a comical experience involving Quaker Oats. Titled “Feeling My Oats”, McQueary tells a hilarious story about how his oatmeal diet had him packing on the pounds! The audience was in tears of laughter over the man’s clever jokes and admirable ability to keep a straight face throughout the recital.

Following McQueary’s comical lead, Sweeten kicked off his poetic masterpiece by recalling a horrifyingly funny event that he now called “Mad Jack’s Dog”.  The cowboy began to explain a weary day in which he was acquainted with a man who allowed him to rest at his cabin for the night. As the evening went along splendidly, the night was quickly spoiled when the man’s dog attacked the poet’s arm. Unsure of the dog’s sudden aggression, Sweeten admitted he was filled with embarrassment when he had learned that he had been enjoying the dog’s supper! 

The audience was thrilled to have witnessed these two talents, as we’re sure you’ll find a bit of humor in them, as well. Check it out below!
