In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.
This substance, called 'amobacter equuii' has been linked with the following symptoms in females: Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework. Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels. Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after 'baby has new shoes, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements'.
'Amobacter equuii' usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans (especially husbands).
'Amobacter equuii' is thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional sources - this may lead to a 'herd mentality' or, like the potato chip commercial, 'you can't have just one'.
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours. It can spread to others, and is contagious.
