There's a German-language horse joke I think is worth explaining. It turns out that in German, the generalised word for a horse bit (Gebiss) also means "dentition" - it's kind of a collective noun for "teeth". So there is this joke about a novice rider who, when asked to remove the horse's bit after riding, was a little wide-eyed and saying, "Is that really necessary, and where are the pliers?"
