I just want to thank the webmaster for the dead horse graphic placed in the "Reform Truss Rod Policy" thread.

I just saw it this morning, and for some reason, it just totally cracked me up. I had to copy it and plan on using it in some emails at work.

Wonderful and humorous way to make the point! Thanks again.

Thank you, Mr. Webmaster! An absolute riot, and terrific way to make a (hopefully) final statement!

In the restoration and parts section. The thread is locked...but in a very funny way.

Well, I guess the horse's name can't be Barbaro...

Several years ago, when the Dead Horse GIF was first posted, I took a copy and added it to something I sent. My recipient was not amused, but I kept the copy because it still made me laugh. The minimalist animation suits it perfectly.

A few weeks ago I entered a competition that required me to write a few arresting words. I thought the subject lent itself to the Dead Horse concept, and I appended the DH GIF to my entry, then forgot about it.

Last week I was notified that my entry was considered good enough to appear on the promoter's website. Although I'm as sure as I can be that the full GIF went to them, something in the publication process meant that only one frame of the animation was displayed (I checked in four browsers). Shame, but that's technology for you: people can't always handle it.

This week I was informed that I have won the rather enviable competition prize. Now I'm sure that, while my words are clearly super, top-notch, and wholly suited to the brief, they could easily have been overlooked without that perfectly appropriate GIF. So I suppose I ought to share some credit, if not the prize. Do tell, Webmaster, if you know: who found that pic and put the frames together? And do they like gin?

:oops:

On checking their site again, I see that a click on the picture opens a new window in which the animation IS visible. Hooray!

I guess I should ask them to include a "Click on picture for more" message for the benefit of dim people like me. :? And I owe the Webmaster (or whoever) even more. :oops:
