Plain Ol’ Ig’nant

So, I’m watching tv the other day, and my show was interrupted by a breaking news story. The first thing that entered my mind was, “Damn, Obama has been shot already ?”. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. What happened was, Barbaro was put to sleep…yeah, I was thinking the same thing, “Who gives a shit ?”. Not only did they interrupt my tv watching time with a story about a dead horse, but they ran video tributes to this fucker. IT’S A HORSE ! People die and tragic ways daily, that don’t recieve the attention that a euthanized horse got. Now, I could understand if Barbaro had once saved a baby from a burning building, was the first horse to be inducted in the the Major League Baseball hall of fame, or came up with the cure for AIDS. All understandable situations, but this was a fucking horse, who only raced 6 times. I’m not impressed. Today I read that there will be a scholarship started in Barbaro’s name…not even I can make this shit up. This is out of control. I don’t understand it, and maybe one day someone can explain it to me, but if there’s one thing I do know, it’s this:

The hood ain’t checking for Barbaro.

    I caught that yesterday morning. How pathetic….all the people in the waiting room were going on and on about this dead horse….and in the back of my mind I am saying to myself….” So what….it’s really just a dead horse….really.”
