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 "amo-bacter equuii", has been linked with the following symptoms in human females:
*reluctance to cook
*reluctance to perform housework
*reluctance to wear anything but boots
*reluctance to work except in support of a horse
*physical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human affected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.
This was a public service announcement...
Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense.
Should add to the above list:
*emotional craving to buy ridiculously expensive equine supplements, blankets, and leather goods
