There was a Western TV series in the US in the 1960s called "Have Gun, Will Travel." It was the motto inscribed on the business card of a mercenary gunslinger called Paladin. I guess you had to be there.Avatar Imagekjbeck says: Congrats to all the winners! The first place motto sounds just like one of the twins! Gotta love it!Avatar ImageFiniteincantatum says: Awesome!
