Respect a ladies...

Postby Bedford » 29 Aug 2007, 23:54

I did my Master's thesis on John Hunt Morgan. Here is a statue of him in Lexington, KY, that honors him. I took the picture on Monday.

Morgan's horse was named Black Bess, and was a mare. Remember that.

You might notice something that normally a mare doesn't have?

Here is part of a poem about it

Proud the eye of good Black Bess,
With shamelessness uncanny,
She just ignores the testicles
That hang beneath her fanny.

Bess's suffering does not end there, however, for it has become a tradition for undergraduates at the University of Kentucky to paint Bess's testicles in bright colors. The ballad also laments this practice:


So darkness comes to Bluegrass men -
Like darkness o'er them falls -
For well we know gentlemen should show
Respect for a lady's balls.

Did you take the picture Bedford? Great shot and the the clarity is good but why didn't you show the front of the statue also?

The corresponding article, in which I am the only one so far who's editted it, is:

Uh, 'edited" only has one 't.' Ironic.

It just made "Did You Know", so I'm happy.

And if the only grammatical errors we saw around here was an extra "t", we'd be fortunate. :roll:
