My source for all things literary, Litlove, has used her research skills and found some more information on the longhorse. She directed me to Nodependencies/Nologo who, in turn directed me to Tinsleman.
I was distressed to find on tinsleman’s blog a whole great stack of disbelievers. People who thought the photographs were photoshopped fakes. This has led me to consider the nature of disbelief and I will be considering that in a future posting on this blog.
The reality is, of course, there has been a great equine conspiracy to photoshop all longhorses out of photographs and other images. One image they have not been able to vandalise is the longhorse cave painting from Lascaux which dates from near the end of the last Ice Age.
It was through the comments on tinselman’s blog that I also found “das kleine kleine Pferd” which was referred to by the poetic Christine.
I think it is doubtful that the longhorse has reached extinction through being used as a pizza topping. However it could be that Fed-ex has chosen to “Ex” himself because Britney is such a nag!
