Whoops. I thought the "previously" had been an FPP, but it's an in-thread link to a pirate copy of the book.

I um, misread the title of this other one of the author's books.

The distortion in the recording is really upsetting me for some reason.

"Latawnya was just like the old sentence -- monkey see, monkey do"

...but she's a horse!

TWIST!!

I'm disappointed the horses didn't try "horse".

This is the best opportunity I'm going to have for probably years to make some kind of joke about that fucking America song my roommate wouldn't stop playing my freshman year and I've got nothing. Just drawing a total blank.

Shit. Maybe drugs are ruining my life.

If Mother and Father Horse didn't want Latawnya to be naughty, they shouldn't have named her Latawnya the Naughty Horse.

That would make more sense than crocodile, I suppose. On the other hand, Latawnya could have picked up that habit from her friend Lyle.

Really, she's not a "naughty horse," she's really more Latawnya the Horse that Very Easily Gives in to Peer Pressure....

"Latawyna, you wanna scrape your face off with these sharp rocks?"
"...I don't know..."
"We're gonna do it later!"
"OKAY!!!!!"
