@Horse_ebooks is one of the most consistently awesome things on the Internet.

The name made me a bit nervous, considering this is the internet and all, and it turns out my nervousness was not completely unfounded, but not really in a bad way... I guess...

You're really missing out if you're not obsessively following everything horse_ebooks says and interpreting every oblique tweet as directly meaningful and relevant to your own life. He even seems to have a distinct personality, obsessions and worries. Some hits from the past week or so:

“What is important in a tent?” Horse_ebooks asked Thomas as Rebecca wrapped her fingers into his silky mane. It wasn’t really a question, but sounded more like the start of a crude knock-knock joke.

Thomas hesitated. He didn’t want to play into this. He wanted to get the image of Horse_ebooks and Rebecca’s pie out of his mind. He wanted to go back and start the hike over and push the horse down the slippery river rocks and—-“What is important in a tent.” Horse_ebooks repeated, slower and more dangerously.



Thank you for this post. You have made me love the world again.

Also horse_ebooks has permanently warped my concept of horses' inner thoughts and dialect.

PAYING THE CAPTAIN

by Horse_Edson

We get on a boat, never mind if it sinks, we pay the captain by throwing him overboard. And when he gets back onboard we say, captain, please don't be angry. And he forgives us this time. And so we throw him overboard again just to make sure we have fully paid the price we have set upon our passage. When he gets back onboard he is not anxious to forgive us, and he would like it much better if we would get off his boat. There is nothing left for us to do but to repay him and hope that this time it will be enough. And so we throw him overboard again. When he comes aboard again we say, now this must be the last of this, we will pay no more, we want the journey to begin.

But it seems there will be no journey since we have gotten the captain used to a good thing. And so we must spend the rest of our days throwing the captain overboard. Horses horse horse Horses Horseys
