Okay, I’ll admit, I was a little stumped for the letter ‘Y’. Yarn just seemed to obvious, and, well, been there, done that.
Don’t ask me where Yosemite Sam came from, some early childhood memory of Saturday morning cartoons perhaps?
Samuel Michelangelo Rosenbaum, otherwise known as Yosemite Sam, is a loud, western figure from the Looney Tunes collection of characters. Elmer Fudd was considered too soft, and Yosemite Sam was created because it was thought Bugs Bunny needed a tougher opponent.
It’s strange how the mind works, and once Yosemite Sam came to mine I couldn’t think of anything else.
