This is funeeeee!
So THAT'S how hobby horses originated!
I add my hoarse laugh to the horse laugh hinted at within this tale of a tail - "It's behind ya!" - as the front legs might say to the back...
Lol...This was so much fun...
ha. the is funny brilliant...some great one liners in there...very nice magpie!
Oh my oh my, but you are clever, Dr. I know this sounds like one of those tossed-off comments that jsut can't be bothered to be properly complimentary, but it isn't, I swear. You ARE clever. Awfully. I can't imagine writing anything like this. Now I'm going off to look up 'bosky'.
Deborah . . good to hear from you again. And thank you . . thank you all for your kind comments.
Sharp, smart, sparkling, witty...
Half-horse power, indeed! I love your brilliant silliness, Doc.
That is really very funny. I love visiting your site.
Unfortunately, I had my mortgage on that bloody horse - we are now living in a tent on a roundabout...
I loved reading of your half a horse, that the half had already bolted.
smart and fun!
Love the half horse-power. Humorous write.Nicely done.
lol hilarious. loved the half horse power and the Shakespeare reference.

The Shakespeare misquote cracked me up!
Very funny! I loved it!
A brilliant funny read, well crafted and full of horse" non- sense. Cheers,joannyhttp://thedowsersdaughter.blogspot.com/
Oh glorious, Dr. FTSE! Suddenly I see a picture before my eyes I haven't thought of for - well, a while :-) - of half the horse of Baron von Münchhausen, I think - the horse standing at a well and drinking - of course sputtering everything out in the middle - before the 'beginning'of the non-existing half.
Dear Dr. FTSE: Definitely half a horse is better than none! Anon! No shat! We think alike in an odd kind of way! I should have remember my Mr. Ed! "A horse is a horse of course of course..." Why didnt I?
Over from Rene's and this is fantastic! I'll be back...Pearl
Thank you, one and all. As always, your comments are too kind . . . but I wonder . . . should you be encouraging me?A special word for Kraxpelax. I bow before your multilingualism. One day I will produce a Poetic Tribute to it. Further, I bow before your physics. Your postulates are quite beyond me. I'm stuck in the first 10exp(-34) seconds after the Big Bang!
Thank you for stopping by. To make life easier for you I have turned off the new indecipherable and time-wasting verification words. Would you care to "feedback" to Blogger and complain about them, like I did?
