Ahhh well now theres a coincidence if ever there were!
'ad a couple of travellers through the other day as had done exactly the
same thing as wot you dun.
Queer folk they was. One of em reckoned 'e was King Arfur an all he did.
No horses either. His friend was bangin together a couple of coconuts would
you believe.
E sed it was a new breed of 'orse. Guess it wos one of em fjords. I saw one
once I did. Twas on the cover of a book, but it had only three legs, an I
thinks to meself, what kind of book 'as a picture of an 'orse wiv only 3
legs? But maybe I is mistaken as now I comes to think about it that book had
no coconuts in it. Or leastways it didnt have no pictures of coconuts. Maybe
some of them words was about coconuts, but bein an illeterate peasant an all
I got nowt business tryin to actually read it.
But tis a strange thing that, I mean where would you be getting coconuts
round ere? Them's tropical fruits they is.
I suppose ye could nail a parrot to em and it could fly em over, but it
would be a bit heavy methinks. Hmmm... perhaps a swallow?

:-)) A mere display of how the English language has the propensity to convey
various interpretations when read from the alternate dispositions of those
of the language's own native moorings. It can be quite distressing and
confusing. The English language is akin to VB (Visual Basic) in that it is
structured just enough to be misused and misinterpreted by all who read it.
Maybe this is true of other languages. But, I am a simple English speaking
bufoon. :-D

fjords is not a horse breed. Fjords are glacier-thingies in Norway.
Even dead parrots know that. At least dead Norwegian parrots.
plumage = feathers
Or were you joking? not sure... my bad day is continuing... but this
list is worth a smile or two.
