Bill Roy/McKenzie Iron has some Southwestern figures----I don't recall him
doing a "siesta" one---at least not the iconic one we're talking about.
As a trivial aside---I wonder how that particular image entered our
cultural "image bank"? It's long been popular in Texas as "yard art" and
cheesy racial-stereotype postcards. I wouldn't be surprised if it
originated in some Disney 'toon.
Ever try to SLEEP in that posture? Doesn't work for me.
