Exclamation Potential Danger of Horse Hair....

Potential Danger of Horse Hair… This is a public service announcement.
In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses. This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in females:
* Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework.
* Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels.
* Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after "baby" has trimmed hooves, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements.
* "Amobacter equuii" usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans (especially husbands).
* "Amobacter equuii" is thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional sources - this may lead to a "herd mentality" or, like the potato chip commercial, "you can’t have just one".
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours.
Surgeon General’s Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive and may impare the ability to use common sense.
"Amobacter equuii" is usually found in females but can occasionally infect males as well.

same here! I'm sad to say that I'm almost 100% sure that I'm affected by amobacter equuii. Maybe I should turn myself in to the government?
