How to win friends and influence people...

Errm, I mean, how to Speak and Argue like Horse:

Horsey tactic number 1: When confronted, attempt to shift the target to another, presumably absent, individual. If subject is indeed there but lurking, backpedal.

Horsey tactic number 2: When the heat lessens, attempt to buddy up with another member in better current standings, hopefully one with thick skin to serve as a human shield.

Horsey tactic number 3: Bore your opponents to tears with excessive verbage. Keeping them slogging through longwinded responses is an excellent way to take out some of the fight.

Horsey tactic number 4: Pretend you like the abuse. Die a little bit inside. Pray they think you genuinely don't mind it, in hopes they'll move on to a more resistant quarry.


Common Horsey-isms:

Yee Hee! - an exclamation of exuberance, or joy. Sometimes just an exclamation of frustration. Often used as a greeting/salutation.

Hyuck! - like Yee Hee, but a slightly more cocky version. Is synonymous with "in your face", or "you are wrong"

Dancing Pretties - friends I wish were mine

Wax = A growing feeling of something, used in conjunction with an adjective ending in "ical" example: I wax full-of-horsehitical. Often used when one runs out of things far more intelligent to say.

Golden Horsey Love - a supposedly warm, glowing feeling usually accompanied by verbal diarrhea that is often spread in vast amounts when Horsey wax-es something. Comes in 'warm glow' and 'alfalfa laced' varieties.
