Mine That Bird

When I was running a project in Kentucky, a local guy I was working with informed me of the following statement:

I don't know why I find that so humorous, but as the lights fade on another year of the Kentucky Derby you know someone in the Bluegrass State saw the 50:1 horse blow out the competition and is ready to lose all their liquid assets.
