Muzzle Man: I have no idea how these horse men got these trays smacked into their muzzles, or why. Tram. Kitchen. Tram II. Flea Market.

Presumably unrelated. DIY!

I can't understand that blond fella, is he speaking Scottish?

It's Norwegian. This is straight up horseheadism and I'm shocked to see it here on display in a place that considers itself progressive.

That horse gentleman is in quite a dapper suit to be doing dishes.

No, I'm pretty sure that's Scottish.

Well, here's the next thing I'm about to inflict on my friends. Thanks cortex! One more thing I can check off of my to-do list.

Interestingly reminds me of Cornelius Snarlington, Business Deer from the Scenes from a Multiverse webcomic. I wonder how he would handle a tray to the face.

Violence is bad. Scripted comic depictions of violence against people wearing horse masks is bad.

This. Hell, I want that clang sound on demand to me at any given moment throughout the workday.

Can't put my finger on why, but these videos just slay me.

No doubt there's some deep cultural significance to these clips (maybe an ancient blood feud between the Norse and Sleipnir), but they're perfect just the way they are. No context required.

I want that clang sound on my phone.

I want an augmented reality app on my phone that uses face recognition algorithms to superimpose horse heads on one in ten random people appearing on the camera at any given time.

Now I want a horse mask, but I'm not so sure about being whacked in the face. Mushrooms would be ok, though.
posted by loquacious at 9:16 PM on February 18, 2011


What is it about that horse head that, I swear, I know I'm gonna meet up that horse man someday in my dreams or in real life (hopefully not real life), I mean what if you're on your deathbed and the last image you see is that horse head guy dancing picking mushrooms or sitting peacefully on a tram just before he gets El KA-BOnGED!! in the face with a tray?

NEIGH NIEGH NEIGH....KA-BONGGGGG!!!

First Tram vid. for me. I rolled.

Why is a dude with horse head getting slapped in the face with a tray so funny??

Perhaps, it's better to simply view again, and enjoy....


and not look a gift horse man in the mouth.

I think these must have derived from the Snel Hest (nice horse) meme in sweden. It's an internet meme like Lolcats. Only it involves a Nice Horse instead of a lolcat.

I hear that though alcohol is not illegal in Norway, it's sort of hard to get. This probably explains a lot.

It's like if Sigur Ros were horses.

Strange and disturbing. Yet soothing and amusing. But creepy, in a fun sort of simple minded way.

Hello horse. Here is my tray.

I have personally called Picasso an asshole. Not to his face, unfortunately, as I'm, completely certain we would have fought, gotten drunk and made fun of other artists together. In that order.
