I Do Not Know What Horse Racing Is

Filed under: — Kate @ 1:18 pm EST

I checked in with Barbaro last night to see how he was feeling…

Kate: Hi Barbaro, I hope you feel better soon.
Barbaro: Try saying that with more or less context. What do you like to do?
Kate: You broke your leg.
Barbaro: Thanks for telling me: User said I broke my leg.
Kate: I hope your leg gets better.
Barbaro: Why do you hope for your leg gets better
Kate: oh nevermind
Barbaro: Yeah that’s right. OK Thanks for trying to explain that to me.
Kate: What do you think about horse racing?
Barbaro: I do not know what horse racing is. What you said was either too complex or too simple for me. Can you speak any foreign languages?
Kate: Do you like racing?
Barbaro: Do you like it? My favorite thing is robots.

Obviously, they have him really doped up on painkillers.

    Why do you constantly get SPAM from that stupid Philadelphia Will Do?

  4. Kate Says:

    Dude, that’s not spam. That’s a trackback because he mentioned this post on his blog. It’s actually very cool. Perhaps you should click on it and see?

  5. Stan Says:

    Spam…Trackback…it still never has anything to do with the subject unless you click on the link in his name.

  6. Kate Says:

    Stan, it’s automated, and it just displays the first few lines of the post that linked to mine. Trackbacks are great–I used them all the time. It’s a way of letting people know who is talking about the things you’ve written.

  7. Stan Says:

    And that’s why it’s your blog and not mine. :)
