    Default A Tale of 3 Horses

    Black Caviar won at Ascot, just. Reading about it in the news this morning, I was drawn to the weight of the horse - 570kgs (88st).

    My 2CV weighs 570kgs and for that I get two horses for the weight of Black Caviar.

    For a moment, I thought about painting the 2CV salmon and covering it with black spots, but I decided against it.

    I didn't realise 2CV's were that powerful, John!

    Mine are very small horses. If the 2CV was in the same race at Ascot, it wouldn't be a photo finish, but rather an opportunity to use the telescopic lens to find out how many furlongs back the car was.

    You do realise that colour is a shade of pink, right?


    PS. Oh, my GOD. I've just had a revelation. John, you poor tormented soul. Are you trying to come out? I can't believe how insensitive we've been to your plea all these years. Man love is A-OK here, mate.

    Still, being a 2CV, who cares?
