Finding a jockey with a normal name for his horse is about as rare as finding a normal person who enjoys horse racing (no pun intended).
It seems that the most enjoyable part of watching the Kentucky Derby each year is to hear the announcer (whose name is unimportant) scream, "Here comes horse rattish on turkey down the stretch!" without even realizing how ridiculous he sounds.
Let's take a look at the 10 funniest horse names of all time. Enjoy!
Sorry, I'm a sucker for a creative horse name like this.
There was no way I was leaving this off the list.
How exactly do you think of something like this?
This makes me wonder if people just sit home all day thinking of the perfect name for their horses.
P.S. I couldn't find a picture of "Really Fast Horse" so I decided to get the next best thing: A picture of Kevin Bacon.
Don't lie, you laughed a little when you saw this.
Once again, no picture, but I bet you thought that picture was Blazing Buddha, didn't you?
Just remember, don't shoot the messenger.
And the picture here is of none other than Britney Spears, because, well, no explanation needed.
Maybe this jockey would have been better off naming his horse "vacant," it would have been received better.
That couldn't have been an easy horse to call coming down the stretch.
Don't think this one is funny?
Well just take a listen:
Seems perfectly normal, right?
Try to say that after listening to this call:
I don't have a problem with people who listen to music, but I do have a problem with people who name their horses after it.
I'm not sure what this has to do with horse racing, but I can't argue with a mother-in-law joke, can I?
I don't condone this type of attitude, but it doesn't mean I can't laugh at it, right?
