“He is a cowboy, not a hillbilly.”
When I worked overseas, a Brit tried to insult several of us Texans by calling us “a bunch of cowboys”. He got so frustrated as we agreed with him saying “damn straight we are”. He didn’t know how to respond so he kept repeating it trying to insult us. We kept taking it as praise and confused him to no end.

"Yankee Doodle Dandy" was originally an insult song that the British made up.
I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.

The Brits used to call Ronald Reagan a “cowboy.”
The problem with the Brits, they don’t know the difference between a cowboy and a gunfighter.
