I was enjoying a drink with John Kerry at my local bar. After telling him a somewhat boring story, I capped it with this: "Straight from the horse's mouth, I tell you." He didn't respond, so I ordered another beer. He did too. A few minutes later, I found myself in the middle of a joke without a punchline in sight. So I closed with this: "You never look a gift horse in the mouth!" After a few quiet moments, I looked down into my half-finished beer. I felt pretty tired. I couldn't believe we lost the election.

08/5/2005 Ewan Snow (4): I'll give this four on the assumption that it was not intended to mean that Kerry has a horse face. Though he *does* have a horse face, this is funnier if it just so happens that the speaker uses two horse cliches for no real reason, and then feels awkward about it...
