Stupid Things People Own...


Horses. People, mainly rich people, spend their money on a lot of obnoxious things, and horses is one of them. I've been around horses a few times in my life, granted it was when I was absolutely shitfaced at the Kentucky Derby and the Hunt, and nowhere relatively near the animals but still, it's closer than most can say. People love horses because they have some "majestic" way about them. The only time I cared for a horse was when I was a sophomore in college and I bet on Barbaro at the Derby, aside from that, horses to me are just really big dogs, or cows on steroids. Do you know how much work goes into taking care of a horse? A shit ton. Do you know who does all the work and takes care of the horses? Mexicans. It's true, if it wasn't for Mexicans all the horses in America would probably be dead, or running around, wild and free, like a pack of large, harmless wolves.

Now, rich people aren't the only type of people who own horses. There are poor people who own horses as well. They're not your everyday, "I still think WWE is real" poor people, but your "I'm Amish" poor people. Yeah, you forgot that Amish people exist didn't you? Well they do, and they're really poor. They can't even afford electricity (haha, stupid Amish). I don't get the appeal of owning a horse or even riding a horse for that matter, much in the same way I don't get people who drive motorcycles. Like that South Park episode said, people who ride Harley's are fags, well I think people who ride horses are fags (except Christopher Reeves, because he was Superman).

Yeah, people who ride Harleys are fags, but not people who ride BMWs. Check this bitch out and tell me that you wouldn't want this.

I would expect someone from your area of the world to have a greater appreciation of horses.

HAHAHAH you are such a fucking loser, tom. do you realize how many loaded AND hot chicks are obsessed with horses? firstly, pretty much every single supermodel. get on the candy train, my friend, don't derail it.

Tom said...

good point, but just because rich hot girls are obsessed with horses doesnt make them stupid. rich hot girls are also obsessed with vampire movies, people magazine and the kardashian show. also, there are a ton of rich hot girls who don't own horses. but apparently you hang out with supermodels so i guess i should take advice from you.

Amish people aren't poor. I worked in wealth management in the great PA Dutch County and those guys just sit on insane amounts of straight cash. They just don't spend or invest it. Hot, rich chicks do own horses and that's fine as long as they don't open their mouths and continue to smell like a ralph lauren perfume sample.

Long live Parker and Stone.

Tom said...

You left out the group of people that make up the majority if horses owners. People who love riding (it feels like flying!) and take care of the horse themselves (no mexicans)and are often in the average range of money making. They just choose to spend money on horse food etc, than have a lot of tv channels, go out to eat a lot or buy a new set of jeans. Many horse owners I know are very frugal, many are college students. They are not just big dogs, the riding is incredibly fun and good exercise. You only mentioned the extreme owners, the expensive race track side, and the working farm animal amish side.

I like riding horses...And Its a hell of a lot of work, so thanks for clearing that up. And honestly, what do you do for fun? Ride four wheelers? Paint? Watch NASCAR? Anything anybody does for fun takes work and accomplishes nothing. So shut your biased trap. Oh, and three things: Im not mexican, Im not rich, and Im polish.

That's a very brave claim to make about horses for someone who watches South Park...then again you've never been on a horse, so how could you understand? Why don't you get your lazy ass off the couch watching your idiotic cartoons and get a taste of how good life can truly be--seen from the back of a horse.

Some of the claims you make may be true; horses are hard work, both wealthy people and the lower class own them, and hired work is sometimes used. However, the overall ignorance of this post can't be denied. Obviously you have very little horse experience and thus have no justification to anything you said. Personally, I have grown up with horses. I am not wealthy, nor am I Mexican. In fact, I do and have done much of the work involved with my horses myself. With your stupidity and immaturity (seriously, calling people "fags" are you in high school?) you will never be able to understand the true joy of owning a horse. You do not know what if feels like to be in complete control of a 1500lb animal (I am aware you cared for a horse once and probably rode a few times but, correct me if I am wrong, you have never done any serious riding). Many horses and many of the people who ride them PROPERLY are true athletes and deserve respect. Horseback riding is in the Olympics after all. Furthermore, the title of this post implies that horses are "stupid things". Since you are obviously mentally incompetent, I will clarify that horses are living breathing organisms and thus are not to be classified as things. As for the stupid aspect, many studies say otherwise and, based on personal experience and the content of this blog, I would say most horses are smarter than you.
