    Ahh, Henny Youngman.
    When I was 16 I broke my pinky in the middle bone, it was sticking out at a 45 degree angle.
    The Dr., holding my hand, said, “What’s that?” so I looked. As I did he put the bone back into place.
    When i looked at him he such a smug, superior grin that it ticked me off more than the fix, which I would have let him do if he’d said he was going to do it.
    So I asked if I would be able to play the violin.
    He answered, “Yes”
    You know my response, “Good, cuz I never could before.”
    The intern splinting and bandaging my finger laughed out loud.
    I figure 40 years later he’s still changing bed pans.

    Don’t be surprised/angry when horses do what horses do.

    Yeah, ‘em hosses got four, heavy, iron-bound clubs wielded by very strong muscles; and they can go from bruising your toes to sending you to the hospital/morgue, depending on their mood. I recommend bein’ nice to ‘em
