Nubbly Douglas trotted into a coffee bar on his horse, Eugene. The barista said sarcastically, “Why the long faces?” Nubbly had heard this insult more than a few times growing up so he just laughed heartily as he and Eugene drank their triple-espressos. Then he gave his trusted steed that special whistle reserved occasions such as this one. And as they trotted away, ol’ Nubbly looked in Eugene’s rear view mirror, smiled and watched as the barista pulled out the mop and bucket and began to clean up their grand retort. The story I just related to you is based on true events. It is a popular fable of kindred spirits and ignorance coming face to face or nose to nose. The maxim or take-away from this fable is this: if you plan on insulting a large mammal, bring a mop and bucket.
