Edwin S Porter [no relation] made The Great Train Robbery in 1903.

Don't say you weren't alive then ... and, no, cheeky, neither was I

But thanks to the magic of genetic modification and extra-terrestrial life, you can watch it here on YouTube.

Ooh, look out the window - is that a haiku? Is it yours? Bang-bang - you're read!

Porter's on the train.
Cowboys con the passengers.
No one hears them scream.

OK and thanks to the posse!

We rode hell for leather through the dust and the heather following the cries of the passengers surprised by gun threats and the kind of onery mustaches them varmints have been tending since they emerged from the womb of hell.

Well, well.

Here's the tally so rally round.

Notching up seven slashes into his gun barrel and putting him into third place - it's MguyX
