Sad, but I LOL'd at the headline.
2007-01-29 12:39:03 PM  
What kind of glue is made from horses anyway?
2007-01-29 12:39:04 PM  
2007-01-29 12:39:16 PM  
And paintbrushes.
2007-01-29 12:39:19 PM  
I submitted this with a better headline. bah.
2007-01-29 12:39:21 PM  
It's a horse. Let's get over it, OK?
2007-01-29 12:39:22 PM  
Way to go Subby. -1

Hope he trots off the Heaven in peace.

I'll always remember his smile.
2007-01-29 12:39:51 PM  
Goodnight, funnyman.
2007-01-29 12:39:55 PM  
i'll stick it!
2007-01-29 12:40:36 PM  
All that effort and money and support and sympathy and press.... FOR A FARKING HORSE!!

I can't help but think that all of it could have been better used elsewhere.
2007-01-29 12:40:37 PM  
murderers! horses are people too!
2007-01-29 12:40:41 PM  
Life_is_a_carnivore: It's a horse. Let's get over it, OK?


2007-01-29 12:40:47 PM  
how many threads were submitted with glue in the headline?

(I admit I did it too)

I was tryign to get on the UPENN vet website but it's so slow, and then when I did get there, they didn't have the news yet.
2007-01-29 12:40:49 PM  
It's a horse. Seriously, this is not news. How many of you actually follow horse racing beyond a casual glance at articles like this. It's not like he was a national hero.
2007-01-29 12:40:53 PM  
I submitted this with a headline about beating a dead horse.
2007-01-29 12:40:59 PM  
From TFA:

Barbaro enthanized


Barbaro's fight for survival may have reached a critical point.

Based on the headline, I'd say his fight has both reached and passed the critical point. :-(
2007-01-29 12:41:00 PM  
I came on here to do a glue joke. Damn you.
2007-01-29 12:41:13 PM  
They spent the last year stocking up all of that precious championship horse sperm, right?
2007-01-29 12:41:26 PM  
He's now the glue holding together The Rainbow Bridge.

blanham: What kind of glue is made from horses anyway?

Elmers. Not just horses, but there's horse in it.
2007-01-29 12:41:33 PM  
Goodnight, funny mare.

I submitted "barbaro downgraded to USDA Chuck"
2007-01-29 12:41:41 PM  
It's about time those greedy bastards let this horse die.
2007-01-29 12:41:42 PM  
No reference to Pie-o-My?
2007-01-29 12:41:51 PM  
I'd glue it.
2007-01-29 12:41:54 PM  
I bet they'll make a really tragic movie that I'll never see.
2007-01-29 12:42:04 PM  
2007-01-29 12:42:13 PM  
This headline sucks. It reeks. It's stupid.
2007-01-29 12:42:22 PM  
Note to self: check pet food stocks.

The sniffin' kind
2007-01-29 12:42:26 PM  
So this will be the last news post about Barbaro? Thank god.
2007-01-29 12:42:28 PM  
Uh, it'd be news if say Claudio Reyna (former captain of the US men's soccer team) were killed in a car accident (big figure in a smaller sport). Why wouldn't this be news?
2007-01-29 12:42:34 PM  
pour one out for my homie

2007-01-29 12:42:41 PM  
reefy: enthanized?

It's perfectly cromulent.
2007-01-29 12:42:43 PM  
Sad that so much attention was paid and hopes were so high.

/Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the US. Lovely walking to school when the mushroom houses "blow over" excess steam. To this day I don't eat that disgusting, grown in shiat, fungus.
2007-01-29 12:42:50 PM  
The headline/grief gave me the `trots'.
2007-01-29 12:42:58 PM  
Why is it we can "enthanize" an animal so they won't have to live in pain, but some old person who's slowly being eaten away by cancer has to just lay there and suffer through it?
2007-01-29 12:43:09 PM  
Wonder if they preserved any of him to try and clone? Cloned sheep, cloned cats, cloned cows... why not a cloned Barbaro?
2007-01-29 12:43:10 PM  

That was extremely rude and uncalled for.

Shame on you for making me lol
2007-01-29 12:43:10 PM  
May he ride off into the sunset

Barbaro Jello?

/wanted for questioning
2007-01-29 12:43:30 PM  
digilos how many threads were submitted with glue in the headline?

I count seven so far.
2007-01-29 12:43:37 PM  
Love the mispelling in the headline.


zipdog: Barbarpwn3d!

too funny
2007-01-29 12:43:39 PM  
There must already be 3 dozen submissions over in TF abouth Barbaro, at least 75% with the glue joke. I was really hoping that a headline not mentioning glue would get the nod.
2007-01-29 12:43:40 PM  
"What kind of glue is made from horses anyway?"

Hide glue. Used for putting a chipped finish on glass.
2007-01-29 12:43:41 PM  
stpickrell: Why wouldn't this be news?

If Claudio Reyna died, it would not be news. Quit kidding yourself.

If Beckham died, that'd be news, since he has attained celebrity status.

If Luca Turilli died, that wouldn't be news, but I guarantee he has a larger fanbase than Claudio Reyna.
