Why do cowboys suck on straw?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cowboy & Indian Camp : One Thread

Classic pictures of cowboys show them sucking on straws. Do you know why? The straw was sucked to keep it moist so it could be inserted in the penis uretheral opening all the way to the bladder. It turns out after riding a horse for a period of time cowboys had a HARD time at taking a piss otherwise.
Anyone for UP?
