As promised, here's the Mountain Man toast (which I got from a former WHA president). And here's what the former pres said:
"The chief objection to the traditional installation, I am certain, is directed at the Green River knife mounted on a plaque that reads: '[incoming President's name] / Head Harr-lifter of the Western History Association / [dates].'"
"The toast itself, accompanied by goofy hand gestures, is inoffensive:"
Here's to the chiles whats come afore,
And here's to the pilgrims whats come arter!
May your trails be free of griz
An' your packs full o' plews
And fat buffler in your pot.
"Silly of course, but fun, and hardly worthy of protest."
Well, that's easy for you to say, as a member of the Waugh family, I'm deeply offended!
"You can never step in the same river twice."
—Heraclitus (although you can't say the same thing about manure.)
