And Then There Was A Blonde And A Horse….

Just checked the headline again. I’ll wager that results in a lot of disappointed Googlers when they arrive on site!!

This dropped into my mail box yesterday. I’m sure it’s yet another telling of a very old storey, but it made me laugh so read on.

A blonde decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience.

She mounts the horse, unassisted, and the horse immediately springs into action. As it gallops along at its steady and rhythmic pace, the blonde begins to slip from the saddle.

In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but despite her best efforts, slides down the horse's flanks.

The horse continues to gallop along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, the blonde attempts to leap away from the horse and throw herself to safety.

Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup.

She is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground time and time again.

As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when, to her great good fortune, Frank, the Woolworth's trolley boy, sees her dilemma and un-plug's the horse.

Quote; Patricia Neal.

“I may be a dumb blonde, but I'm not that blonde.”
