Hi Yo Silver! Get Away!

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear when horses did not get venereal diseases!

The California Department of Food and Agriculture says veterinarians have 14 horses in quarantine as they work with federal officials to control a highly contagious venereal disease.

California now is among 39 states testing horses that might have been exposed to contagious equine metritis.

While the contagious equine metritis (CEM) is contagious, it does not appear to affect humans. But it can ruin a horse’s day. Here’s a fact sheet.

Horses got STDs? Who Knew?

While the abbreviation CEM may be descriptive, we here at Blue Crab Boulevard propose a more catchy name for this scourge: CCC.

That would be Clip Clop Clap.

    You outdid yourself with that one, Gaius. I’m still chuckling. Better watch out for vengeance from the Animal Uprising.

    Were they engaged?

    This is just an illegal Rovian/Haliburton scheme to get even for the Animal Uprising(TM). We all know that Bush created HIV in order to wipe out the African-American community who was threaning to expose the fact that 9/11 was a plot to blow up the levees of New Orleans and destroy evidence that Ken Lay was running a secret operation from Area 51 of Gitmo to infect the snail darter with Christianist tax-cutting homophobic abstinance-only education to keep horses in the dark about condoms.

    See how it all fits together? Only a neocon would think there is no connection.

    Yours was a hoot, too, Mwalimu. Loved it.

    Are the Crabs OK? Have they been checked by a qualified marine biologist / veterinarian?

  6. This seems like the exact thread to bring this up. Have ya’ll seen “Pocket Obama” yet?

    It seems the Followers of The One have put out a Little Blue Book.

    If those horses hadn’t been promiscouous, then they wouldn’t have got the clip clop clap.
