Pull up your socks, Dobbin!
Blog Guy, I’m a recent college graduate and I need your help finding a suitable career. My mom got me a colorful brochure called “The Exciting World of Putting Socks on Horses,” and I wondered what you think of that career path.
Forget it. Listen to me. How long have you known about horseshoes?
All my life, why?
And how long have you known about horse SOCKS?
Um, about ten minutes, just since I got the brochures.
Right. So if you don’t know about ’em, horses don’t know about ’em, and they do not adapt quickly to new articles of clothing.
But the brochure has actual quotes from horse-socking professionals, like Bernard “Slackjaw” Wilson and the legendary Eugene “Clamphead” Johnson!
I see. And what does Clamphead say?
According to the brochure, Clamphead says, “Brenda, let’s go to Honduras!”
To tell you the truth I’m not sure what that means, but it makes a lot more sense than Slackjaw’s quote.
