cowboy-iest

adj. If you thought "cowboy" and "cowboy-ier" were cowboy-y, think again.

Real citation: "i saw the cowboy-iest cowboy ever today. he had everything but the horse in the store."

Made-up citation: "1997 was the cowboy-iest year of my life. That's the year I learned what kind of magic can happen behind a haystack when the rodeo's in town."

You may be a linguist, but you don't know "cowboyese." A real cowboy (and we do exist) would refer to that person in the store as being "punchy" not "cowboyiest."
