A lot of people call Brokeback Mountain the "gay cowboy movie."
But as any good spoiler summary reveals, they aren't exactly cowboys. In fact, it is sheep that they are taking care of.
I guess "gay sheepherder movie" doesn't have the same ring to it.
Maybe they still count as cowboys in the broader sense that they ride around on horses in the American West and wear the same hats as cowboys.
And while we're on the subject of sheep...
Why is it people only count sheep
When they're trying to go to sleep?
Why not cows?
Perhaps because a stampede would rouse
Everyone else in the house.
