    stuck in a western on crack

    Dear all,


    What is the meaning of "stuck in a western on crack" in:

    {OUR ROOM WAS LIKE WE WERE STUCK IN A WESTERN ON CRACK.}


    It was said by a couple who were not satisfied with their hotel room. The theme of the room was about horses.


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Is there more context? Western can be a movie genre or it could refer to a hotel chain.

    Re: stuck in a western on crack

    I think this quote is funny.

    A "Western" is a type of movie with cowboys and horses.
    "Crack" is a type of illegal drug.

    Imagine if you made a Western movie with all the horses and actors, as well as the director and writer, doing illegal drugs. It wouldn't be a pretty sight.

    (My brother-in-law once got a room with an alleged Shinto theme and looked like a ninja movie on crack.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I'm sorry but I'm laughing out loud here. That is absolutely hysterical!

    Anyway, crack is uncountable. You can't make a plural from it. Same as cocaine. (crack = cocaine)

    You kindly mean "a cowboy movie" about drugs?

    Thanks a lot.

    It doesn't mean merely "using drugs". It's an idiom. Did you actually read the definitions at the webpages I linked?

    Perhaps the decoration was so bad, so bizarre or over-done overwhelming the senses (this would be the reference to on crack) or whoever decorated the place may have been on crack and therefore the room looks the way it does! (But I think in this case it is the first of my two examples.)

    Not a teacher.
