A veterinarian in Devon, England, was summoned to a local farm where a horse had become tangled in a fence. To free the spooked horse, the vet decided to sedate it. However, once she’d injected the animal, she couldn’t get out of the way fast enough. The horse went unconscious and collapsed on top of her – and fire-fighters had to be called to rescue her.
Luckily she sustained no injuries (reported the London Telegraph) … apart from her pride, which was slightly bruised.
VACUUM FAUX PAS
A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.
“Good morning,” said the young man. “If I could take a couple minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in vacuum cleaners …”
“Go away!” said the old lady. “‘I haven’t got any money!” and she proceeded to close the door.
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door. “Don’t be too hasty!” he said. “Not until you’ve at least seen my demonstration.” And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto the floor. “Now, if this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of horse poop from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.”
The old lady stepped back. “Well let me get you a fork,” she announced, “because they cut off my electricity this morning.”
