"Undomesticated equines could not remove me"

That quote from Stargate SG-1 always makes me crack up. It was Teal'c's attempt at humor. You know what it means, of course, right?

Wild Horses couldn't drag me away.

Most of you music-minded people know the saying more as lyrics to the Rolling Stones' tune, "Wild Horses" from their 1971 album, Sticky Fingers.

All of this came to mind as I was reading the Yahoo!News article about Sheryl Crow's fight to save the wild mustangs of the West. And she's not the only one with a passion for this cause. Willie Nelson, Lily Tomlin, Bill Maher and Ed Harris are all in the fight as well.

You can read the full article here.


  1. That wasn't an attempt at humor, he was being serious.

  2. lol, he was totally serious. He was trying to use an idiomatic expression, but sort of failed, the poor alien.
