Mustang

MUSTANG, n. An indocile horse of the western plains. In English society, the American wife of an English nobleman.

2008 Update: A bohemian pony, unaffiliated with man and commerce but nonetheless holding opinions on government.

Funny how Sally is hte only name I've ever heard for a mustang.

Saurerkraut, it is that Sally rides her Mustang all over town. Wilson Picket sang that song, Mustang Sally sooooo good. I have two Mustangs, they go all over town, up hill and down hill, and all around. One is 35 years old (green), the other is eleven (black). Thanks, Jim, for the update II.
..
BTW, one of my Mustangs is a '74Mustang II, the other is a 98 Mustang GT Convertible.
..
Oh yes, RABBIT, RABBIT.

Tamed in horse and car thus taking all of the fun out of it.

(I don't know.)

My uncle had a mustang -- a retired cutting horse us kids used to ride. We'd say, "Go thata way" and the dang horse would see something it thought needed rounding up, and it would go ta'other way.

I've been on a horse seven times in my life. I have fallen off a horse seven times in my life.

cooper said...

I've known many human mustangs, and then they turned 32. I hear it used to be 27, at least that is what my mother tells me.

Cooper said...

I'll send you a secret feed burner email.

Mustang: Winnetou, Old Shatterhand, Old Firehand, Old Death, Gojko Mitic, Sunday mornings, black and white television, wagons made of armchairs tossed to each other. And the jeans later on.

Good luck in March, Sauerkraut.

Jim, I predicted you'd be the one to first bring up Wilson Pickett. I was only off by one.

Paw paw, Amoeba. That pun took me a second.

Nah, but that's ok, Nessa. A mustang is specifically a wild horse.

Stay perfect, Quilly.

Minka, you're over my head with that one.

Actonbell, I wonder if Bierce was telling the truth or making that up.

Terry, as Merle Haggard puts it, they ain't homeless, Mister, they just don't have a corral.

Icy, I have no idea what you might mean.

No wonder you were charming, Bear. Peace be unto you.

Cooper, it was 27 for my generation. And thank you.

Karl Max, Ariel? You forgot Old Surehand.

O. k., if the Corvette is flooded.

Doug said...

Ha, Weirsdo. It says a lot about the cult if a pony car is better than a muddy 'vette.
