Cowboy Cowboy  

A cowboy on a cattle drive talking to the cook at night sees a rattlesnake crawling and says "you got a visitor." They decide to play a joke on the other cowboys. He picks it up with a stick, dropping it a couple times. (This is a live rattlesnake, probably a Southern Pacific Rattlesnake.) Then he picks it up (this time it's a rubber fake rattlesnake with its mouth permanently open) and carries it over to Jack Lemmon, who runs away screaming in fear. Another cowboy picks the snake up with a stick and throws it. It gets tossed back and forth until it finally wraps around the neck of a cowboy and bites him on the throat. "He got me" is his response. The boss pulls out a knife to cut and suck but changes his mind saying it must have got him in a vein. They watch him die then bury him with only Jack Lemmon demanding that somebody be held responsible for what happened. Nobody is.
