I have been annoying my son with this joke for years.
Every time I see the cliche, where the guy falls from the horse and is scraped along the ground for about a half a mile…
I cannot help but say “What a drag!”
Tonight I see that joke relflected in an ad for a Disney: Snow Dogs 2? A guy is being pulled through the snow and the dog says: “What a drag”
How common is this? There have been a number of jokes that flash through the culture.
Do they originate from any number of locations ( the mathematical random monkey Shakespeare theorem)
From one location and quickly spread by the media…
