Confession regarding The Official Colt McCoy Threat Level Indicator:
When I was a little kid growing up in Wyoming, I thought jackalopes were real.
Antelopes are real. Jackrabbits are real.
Even prairie dogs are real.
Why can’t jackalopes be real?
Just don’t ever Google Image Search the shope palilmona virus in rabbits. (Which might be where the jackalope legend comes from.)
