Testing Time

Next Time, Try Putting The Cart Before The Horse

Traffic police in Romania tested a horse for alcohol after the cart it was pulling hit a man who was sitting on a bench. The officers, from Lelesti in Gorj county, asked a vet to conduct a blood test which turned out positive. Police suspect the horse might have been given alcohol to make it look stronger and healthier before it was sold.

FOOTNOTE: Cart blanch.

Now that is different. I've never heard of a horse getting a DWI! I hope the man that was hit is ok!

You can take a horse to water, but some prefer booze.

I thought it was OK to "hoof" it if you were drunk.

Alternate Footnote:

Now we know why the bartender asked the horse, "Why the long face?"

Now I've heard it all...give a horse alcohol to make it look young and healthy but give a man alcohol it just makes him look like an ass.
