Zebra circa 1900 Gustav
|Although similar to the horse, zebras don't take to domestication quite as well. Anyone who has handled zebras would say this is an understatement. If you take a look at your life or medical insurance policy you will notice that written quite clearly in medium sized print on the top of the first page is the following: "Under no circumstance will this policy be valid for death or injury occurring while zebra riding or zebra viewing from a distance of less than 500 feet, in fact, you will be fined a 25% reduction in the benefits of this policy on all other issues for any interference with the life style and/or pursuit of happiness of a zebra." Thus spoken you might better understand the old gothic saying "once struck by zebra, twice stuck in quicksand of eternity". Not to worry if you are a carousel lover, the wooden black and white stripped animals called zebras on a carousel are actually horses recarved and painted to look like zebras, so, they are not actually zebras.|
