…but I’m not going to let that stop me.
I’ve had “War Horse” in the Netflix queue for some time. It arrived last weekend, but Alan had already seen it (because he’s seen everything) so I saved it to watch on my own. “You’ll love it,” Alan promised.
Alas, halfway in, I wasn’t loving it. So I paused it and hopped on Facebook:
Then, feeling feisty, I updated my profile photo so that anyone looking for me (but mainly Alan) would see this photo:
That somehow set off a pun contest among my friends, resulting in the following comments:

Time to hit the hay

Dang it! I just herd there were horse puns here. Looks like I missed the mane event.
Okay, just one, even though the horse is out of the barn already.
I bet he loves the smell of neigh-palm in the morning.
And then my sister showed up, skipped all the puns and asked, “But the image?? What IS that?”
Alan patiently explained, “You might surmise from the random spray of gunfire, but in fact she just meh’d a movie recommendation of mine. Demonstrably.”
Which then brought a previous commenter back out of the woodwork:
Wait. You mean she was a neigh-sayer?
