Marshall. Cap'n.

On my way in to a nerdy event at a gaming convention, dressed like a pirate, I happened to pass by another fellow dressed like a cowboy. He was a tall and stocky middle-aged black man in a ten gallon hat, bandana around his neck, boots, spurs, and a black leather vest with a tin U.S. Marshall star.

As I passed him on the sidewalk I touched my tricorn hat and said, "Marshall." Without missing a beat, like an officer returning a salute he touched his Stetson and said, "Cap'n."
