Horsing around

bluebird of bitterness

Three race horses in adjoining stalls were arguing over which of them was the best.

“Of my last sixteen races, I’ve won nine,” said the first horse.

“Not bad,” said the second horse. “But of my last twenty-two races, I’ve won fourteen.”

“Impressive,” said the third horse. “But of my last twenty-nine races, I’ve won twenty-three.”

A greyhound who was lurking nearby overheard the horses arguing and decided to join the conversation.

“I don’t mean to brag,” the greyhound said, “but of my last forty-six races, I’ve won forty-three.”

The horses were clearly astonished. After a long silence, one of the horses said in an awestruck voice, “Wow! A talking dog!”
