Need a Laugh?

I received this e-mail from our equine dentist yesterday. I've seen it before, but it gave me a good laugh - thought you all might enjoy it, too. And I KNOW there are some of you out there (you know who you are) who can totally relate to this!

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.

Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense."

Uh oh... I think it's crossed the species barrier.... Mom thinks she has "Amobacter Lagomorphi".... She definitely will talk about rabbits for HOURS.....

I definitely need to send that to my neighbor. She currently has 3 horses, one of which is due to foal at the end of the month. And, she's been shopping around for another one!

Glad to hear the fundraiser went well. I've asked to be put on the mailing list so I can keep up to date on all their events!

Sarah said...

oh that is cute! And true. I had a "horse bug" problem before, but the more blogs I find to read that are horsey, the more I'm driving my husband nuts while I "window shop" for the perfect one.

Desert Rose said...

Oh so true and it was fun to read it again...but since my hubby saw it once and thought it was not laughing matter I will not let him even see it cause our herd will be growing soon!
