The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
What's that saying about horses and zebras?

On the way to work there was a very large dead thing on the road by the Belmont stalls.

"Ugh!" I say, "what the hell was that?!"

"A rat," says Dany.

"That was no rat. That was a very large raccoon or a medium dog or a pony!"

"It was a rat," Dany insists, "I saw it's scaly tail."

"Well if it was a rat it doesn't belong by the racetrack. It belongs in the fucking Fire Swamp!"

Later in the day, after Dany passes the very large dead thing on his way home from work, he tells me, "You know, I think you're right. It isn't a rat. It's a. . .."

"Opossum?" I venture.

"No. A capybara. It must have hitched a ride with the hay they bring for the horses from South Amer. . ." He takes a look at my face. He sees that I'm trying my damndest not to point and laugh at him (my new thing of trying not to be so mean all the time. Kinda hard when your husband is seriously thinking up a scenario where capybaras are transported to Long Island in hay bales), "or maybe a 'possum. Yeah, it was probably a 'possum."



So where's my crown? Or my cash award? Don't I get some sort of reward for not laughing myself silly over that? Could you have kept a straight face?

Personally (and not having seen the animal carcass in question), I think it was the Chupacabra.

Prove me wrong, I dare you.

It coulda been a goat AND a vampire.

It would have been pretty cool if it were a capybara carcass...

Dammit! "Was a capybara carcass."

Capybaras' don't have tails. Unless it was in disguise. It could have been in disguise, trying to infiltrate the country.
