It sounds like the beginning of a terrible joke: "So, a horse walks into Hobby Lobby…" but it actually isn’t! This horse wasn’t kidding around when he headed into a Hobby Lobby just before Thanksgiving.
The shoppers who went for some last minute decoration shopping at the Hobby Lobby market in Greenwood, South Carolina on November 22 got one quite unusual surprise when a rogue seal brown horse entered the market and stood dead still in the middle of the aisles!
“Um, excuse me ma’am, where can I find the horseshoe decorations? I’d like to put one up above my barn door. The missus would like to catch some luck this Thanksgiving.” is what is going through our heads in Mister Ed’s voice. If this didn’t crack you up, then we don’t know what will.
Whether it was the Black Friday deals, the horse shaped decorations or just the general excitement that was happening at Hobby Lobby at the moment that made this poor animal get inside, we can’t know. What we do know is that everyone present was caught off guard by his impromptu appearance.
The horse was quickly intercepted by a security guard, so his shopping trip was cut short before he made it to the western decor section or the holiday candy.
In a similar fashion, another horse walked into a supermarket somewhere in Mexico, this time accompanied by his cowboy, for one purpose and one purpose alone - to get a six-pack of beers! What would Mister Ed say about that?!
