As we were walking up to Turf Paradise, the local horse racing track…
Liam: “Every time we come here, there’s a plastic bag flying around the parking lot.”
My mother: “Maybe that’s a sign we should bet on a horse with ‘plastic’ or ‘bag’ in its name.”
Liam: “Or maybe it’s just a sign that people should start recycling, but okay.”

OMG that meme. I can’t stop laughing. I don’t why I think animals saying MothaFuka is so funny BUT I DO!
I wish I’d made that one. It just about made me pee. 🙂
Can we please back up and question why you are taking your kid’s to the racetrack to bet on horses? Because I’m gonna find that way more interesting than a plastic bag.
My grandfather raised horses in Ireland before he came here, so I spent a lot of time watching horses race with he and my grandmother. I have a sentimental fondness for it. 🙂
Funny, smart AND
whoops – got cut off there.
Going to the racetrack with your mom and grandma might make you the coolest kid in the world.
They know had to read the forms, too. 🙂
The bags are escapees from the horse track where the latest requirement is that you have to bag your horse’s poop. The winner is excused. It’s another incentive to run fast. –Curt
That would take a HUUUUUGE bag! *shudder*
At the dog track, I always bet on the dog that poops during the walk to the gate. It has to be faster with less weight.
Or the horse that pees in the parade circle. 🙂
I’ve always liked horse races, having grown up with horses and the annual trip to the Humboldt County Fair where my mom would bet on them. But for entertainment value I used to like the barrel races at the rodeo better, because of the cute cowgirls who rode those horses. Also, after they dry out a little, horse-turds are perfect for beaning your sibling upside the head with…
Please, please never let my sons find that out.
I won’t tell… Except that I sorta already did, and really it’s only likely to become a thing if your kids get really bored in a place where there are a lot of horse-turds lying around.
That’s a losing scenario regardless. Lol
Signs are definitely how you read them. As for horses, one should feed them beans before a race to get the best advantage from the jet propulsion unit.
Also works for half my class before PE!
I would have taken it as a sign to bring another bag and bet on which one would win the race around the lot. But that’s me.
Your son would be complaining up a storm about the apartment house I lived at in the Valley (Providence). If there was any trash left on the road within 6 blocks of the place, the wind would guarantee it ending up in that yard within the day.
You were in the vortex!
I was certainly in something, but I usually describe that area with my blissfully owning a pair of Wellies
Ohhhhh, I want some Wellies.
