Do what? Not funny? I suggest you try it out on a few people before you make that judgement![/QUOTE]I thought it was quite funny, but I do have a soft spot for awful "classic" jokes. "A man walks into a bar..." or "Doctor, Doctor!". I'm a bit weird like that.

I only got it after the explanation, but I kind of think I would have got it in the first place if I'd seen the movements... just wished I'd visualised them properly! I'm actually quite surprised you hadn't seen that used Epona, I've not been in London all that long and I recognised it, but as I say - only when I'd been "spoiled" so to speak.

As I suspected, the "all that" comment was the key for my understanding of the joke. Ah well.
