They Shoot Horses Don't They?

There are lots of things I don’t really understand in life. One of those things is the Melbourne Cup. For goodness sake, why does the whole country get so excited about a bunch of strangely dressed men riding horses. Suddenly everyone’s an expert. Every two bit celebrity is giving their tip and the country gambles away millions of dollars. I really can’t get excited about the whole deal. I can’t tell you who won but apparently the horse is owned by a tuna fisherman from South Australia.
