Glue, anyone?

I can't take it anymore. I'm sorry, but someone has to stand up and put an end to this madness. I can no longer sit by and watch as the world gets all sad and mourns a damn HORSE. Are we serious people? This is an animal that besides running is best known for being glue. Yes, tasty and delicious glue. (How great is that picture by the way? It's from Deadspin.... they do great things over there.) And I know that someone will say that this is cruel and Barbaro was inspiring and all that crap, and to that I say, "have you lost your ever-loving mind?"

People care more about this big bundle o' glue, than they did about James Brown and he only inspired a legion of musicians and sang for Apollo Creed. How does that make sense? I know James did a lot of drugs and women, but at least he could talk.

And writing messages/letters to horse? Who does that? Honestly, I'm really confused. It's just creepy actually. People act as if you don't like this horse, then you're on the Osama Bin Laden listserve or something:
So long as you continue your brave fight, this nation can rest assured that the terrorists didn't win. God Bless Barbaro, and God Bless the United States of America! Crusader; OK, USA.
Since when did a horse stand for America? Is this why the immigrants came here? Why people are dying at the borders? For a glimpse at the beauty that is Barbaro? Are they going to have his body for viewing in the Capitol? That would be something. Should they add this to the Statue of Liberty: "Give me your poor, your tired, your weak, and your horse lovers?" Now, I'm not against animals in general or horses in particular, but I must draw the line when people put animals above people. Especially when there are real things to worry about. Like when is DeBarge getting back together? And how much do you wanna bet that a large number of people who write to Barbaro don't...um... like people of um... color.

But if you had any doubt about how Barbaro would want us to feel... here's a letter he wrote (via a horse whisperer I'm sure)

(You think Barbaro was down with the swirl?)

Hey, Horses are important! It is sad when a well known animal dies. Maybe some of these people connect to the incident in someway. If you have a beloved animal, like a dog, and it dies, you are going to cry. So why can't we cry for this animal. Our world can be so cruel sometimes, and it is nice when people come together for a change.
